Fun with Spellcheck! Chapter 1 Can't Post

Spellcheck is not what you'd call familiar with Tolkien. Anyone who's written or reviewed just about anything from LotR (et al) on a Word document will have seen a page full of squiggly red lines, and probably got a good snortle or three out of what Spellcheck suggested as "corrections" for words not in its dictionary. (It didn't even give suggestions for entries like Alcarinquë, Akallabêth and Ainulindalë – it just sort of threw up its digital hands in despair.) Thus I give you: Fun with Spellcheck!

I did this once or twice a long time ago with a passage from LotR, but this time I figured I'd use a list of the entries from The Encyclopedia of Arda. I admit to choosing the funniest option offered, but I didn't make any of these up. Enjoy!
