I enjoy reading about the nuances that translation give.
And I enjoy a good tangent!

An earlier discussion about translation (here: http://newboards.theonering.net/...i?post=876030#876030 ) mentioned this passage as it appears in German. It was mostly about how Tolkien uses verbs such as shall, will, and how a target language might force a translator to be explicit where English is ambiguous.
We didn't have a Chinese speaker to contribute at the time (but our threads remain ever open if anyone wants to make a late contribution!)

Where's that old read-through discussion?
A wonderful list of links to previous chapters in the 2014-2016 LOTR read-through (and to previous read-throughs) is curated by our very own 'squire' here http://users.bestweb.net/...-SixthDiscussion.htm
