For Jim Allan

In case you haven't already seen it, Carl Hostetter's paper "Tolkienian Linguistics: The First Fifty Years" praises your An Introduction to Elvish to the stars, calling it
"a truly remarkable achievement, unrivalled in its originality and impact on the field before or since, a testament to the scholarly rigor, practices, and linguistic knowledge brought and applied by its contributors to the study of Tolkien’s languages, and, because of this, still standing as the model of and best introduction to the principles, methodologies, and sound schol-arly practices of Tolkienian linguistics."
“It is good to be both loved and feared; but if one cannot be both, it is better to be feared than loved" --Machiavelli
