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).
"Sit by the firelight's glow; tell us an old tale we know. Tell of adventures strange and rare; never to change, ever to share! Stories we tell will cast their spell, now and for always."
