Nah, I just wasn't thinking carefully about his language, so he's speaking like I would, living in the linguistic aftermath of 1066. Blasted Norman thugs. I'll find a substitute directly.


EDIT: Well, I mean, sure, he would be familiar with Gondorian language, but he's smart enough and well-travelled enough to speak the native language of whatever country he happens to be passing through, and not speak in a kind of polyglot mish-mash. Like I wrote him doing. I'll watch out for that in the future.
