Snow White and the Seven Dwarves [In reply to] Can't Post

In other words, if we talk about Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Dopey etc., we use 'dwarfs' but if we talk about the descendants of the Naugrim of the Elder Days, we use 'dwarves'. Smile

I can't help thinking of Snow White's protectors as dwarves as well; they are the fantastical beings of myth and folktale rather than a bunch of short humans. Besides, it sounds much better than Snow White and the Seven Dwarrows.
