Abstract

An engaging linguistic study of the Mirkwood episode in Tolkien’s The Hobbit, which the author uses as a typical example of the depth and interwoven complexity of the author’s linguistic invention. Touches on the linguistic features of a number of real and invented words and concepts relating to spiders, poison, and dwarves.
