The Saucepan Man has been trapped in the Barrow!

Orcs and Goblins are the same thing exactly. The only difference is the language. Orc is in the Common Tongue. Goblin is Elvish. Uruk-hai are a crossbreed between orcs and dark men from the south. Saruman made them.
Not sure what you mean by the languages. Orcs spoke Orcish, and Goblins probably did too (perhaps a different dialect).

Goblins are a type of Orc, although I always imagined them as smaller (perhaps that just comes from playing Dungeons & Dragons in my youth).

As for who created the Uruk-Hai and how, see my post above. You are talking about the film Uruk-Hai, a different kettle of fish from the Uruk-Hai in the books. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
Do you mind? I'm busy doing the fishstick. It's a very delicate state of mind!
