Hitherto unknown Dwarvish language deciphered…

Hitherto unknown Dwarvish language deciphered… Can't Post

(The following somewhat nonsensical and ill-transliterated anecdote is in the long-secretive Dwarvish Tongue of alliter-ample which is difficult to render in the Common Speech and this is but a rough echo of it.)

Stealthily Saruman and Sauron sat astride stolen steeds Sharp-ears and Swish-tail shadowed steadfastly by serfs Shagrat and Snaga and set siege upon Stock and Standelf in the Shire. But sturdy Samwise with several squads of short but stout Sackvilles, stalwart soldiers all and strong swinging sword and sabre, soon swept Shadow’s storm aside sending said assaulters scattering.
Yet soon both sides sanctioned to suffer a stalemate and all and sundry stopped at Scary’s Scrod and Shots for snacks and a schooner of suds (Super-size).

Should any other examples of alliter-ample be found you are encouraged to share them with us.

‘. . . the rule of no realm is mine . . .
But all worthy things that are in peril . . . those are my care.
For I also am a steward. Did you not know?'
