Pervinca Took is a guest of Tom Bombadil.
EXCLAMATIONS (please give the utterer and the context, if you can).

1. Lawks! (Merry, Crickhollow).
2. Garn! (A mild expletive preferred in ruffian and orkish circles).
3. Blast! (Uttered by Tolkien when he stumbled/tripped in the dark being Father Christmas (as reported by his children). EDIT: Also when he made a mistake writing 'Elen sila lumenn'omentielvo' (on film, in elvish characters).
4. Fool of a Took! (Gandalf, in Moria).
5. Damn the boy! (Tolkien again, when Christopher noticed he'd got the colour of a dwarf's hood/beard wrong).
6. Ai! ai! (Legolas, upon seeing a Balrog).
7. Daro! (An elf in Lothlorien).
8. Burárum! (an entish noise of disgust).
9. Ea! (Eru, at the beginning of creation).

10. Oh God! Not another ****ing elf! (Hugo Dyson, while Tolkien was reading from LotR to the Inklings).

(I do have to wonder who he was talking about. Haldir or Galadriel is my guess.)
