You are mostly right... [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To
In the books, Roac is actually an exception tot he rule. The thrush and other ravens need the human to interpret their language (Al a Bard and Dain).



You are correct about the thrush, but not the ravens; some members of Rońc's kin are indeed capable of Mannish speech. I think you are confusing them with the crows that are understood by the Dwarves but do not speak Westron.
