Pity she doesn't know anything about linguistics.
For example, she is apparently unaware of consonant mutation in Celtic language, which is an important part of Sindarin grammar; and she ignores the dual '-t', even though she does gloss it in one place.
The word lists are useful, though. ( )

Definately an interesting read for those highly interested in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. This book has an extensive dictionary of words used in Lord of the Rings as well as an overview of almost all of the languages. There are big chapters on the forms of Elvish also. ( )
