Or since he was a contributor to OED, did he sneak in any of his words? [In reply to] Can't Post

Do hobbits litter the pages in subversive ways? Does he define palantir and then disguise it with a pseudo-etymology of Indo-European roots? Maybe it is only in the OED that he explains what a Variag of Khand is.

Let's cancel The Sil and discuss OED next.

More seriously, there was a book written about how it came about, and though it sounds dull, it was entertaining.
