I like this change actually, I agree with gandalf's comments that it is currently an awkward start to a chapter, and this edit makes it much smoother. Personally, I think I am in favor of including...

I actually like this a lot, but instead of just 'formerly Vinyalondë' I think it should be '(which was of old called Vinyalondë)' to keep a more Tolkien-esque feel to it. Also I would give this...

I actually like this much better, nice job Fin! Only two comments:

CGC-SL-13.5: the initial 'But' should be changed to a 'Thus' to make the texts flow together more smoothly. In the old draft we...

1) That is a very good point, and I myself agree to the change.

2) There is no general rule (so far) for italicizing words. But you are right that in this case they probably should be. All the...

1) The UT reading is actually grammatically fine, just archaic.

2) Agreed, and it was changed in the actual draft, but the 'as' should not be changed to 'was' since that would make the sentence...

gandalf, the portion of the draft with that note reads thus: To me this is explanation enough: they were the Men in Eriador.

That bit of writing is included in the Tal-Elmar chapter, so it does...

1) thanks for the catch! I fixed it in my copy.

2) If people or places or things have more than one name, Tolkien at times uses various ones, and we have not standardized them in the past. Both...
