Well it definately sounds better than Tolkien Geek! On the other hand, I think it kind of sounds like a religion. Are we going to start passing out tracts on street corners? <img src=laugh.gif ALT=":lol">

<img src="http://www.barrowdowns.com/images/posticons/sting.jpg" align=absmiddle> Re: Tolkienists

Speaking of obsessions and religions and geekery (not suggesting the three are the same, either), just this afternoon, I was thinking that after I leave school, I should get a job in a bookshop, and then I realised that I'd put them out of business.

Customer: I was wondering if you could recommend any mystery novels?
Me: Stuff mysteries! Read Tolkien!

Customer 2: Do you have any Starwars books?
Me: Starwars? Are you joking? What kind of idiot reads Starwars? You freak! Here, why don't you have a look at this nice copy of the Silmarillion?

And so on... <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

But yeah, Tolkienist sounds good, but I'm sure there's got to be a better word than that. &quot;Tolkienist&quot; looks strange in print.

"This sig is proudly quote-free." -Me.

Tolkien - toll' keen

Tolkienist does sound awfully professional. Like an academic who gets paid to research and teach Tolkien's works.

Tolkien Fan is probably more descriptive of most of us.

Tolkien Freak/Geek/Nerd is certainly an accurate description of quite a few!

Now Tolkienista has a sound I like! Sort of a revolutionary junta feel to it.

Tolkienian I suppose is descriptive of things that are like Tolkien's writing

A Tolkienary is one who follows his &quot;teachings.&quot; These are the folk on the street corner!

Incidentally, for those who didn't know, his own faith, and the teachings he would recommend, is Christianity. The Tar Ost-in-Eruhir link in my signature is available for those with such an interest.

I know toll-KEEN is right, but I still say toll-KEE-en most of the time because it was my original interpretation. Just like I can't bring myself to say SOW-ron.

&quot;Tolkienist&quot; sounds more like someone who performs Tolkienistic feats, like an &quot;alienist&quot; or a &quot;hypnotist&quot;. There's an air of charlatanism about it. How about &quot;Tolkienite&quot;? &quot;Tolkienism&quot; as a form of government?

Here are a few more terms to describe different Tolkienistic disciplines:
&quot;Tolkienology&quot;
&quot;Tolkieneneology&quot;
&quot;Tolkienography&quot;
&quot;Tolkienophonics&quot;

the samethingwithme(andf*** the spacebaron this commonly shared pc) though I was not given the opportunity to interpret it myself - russian translation has all the pronouncing neatly set forme,so it's now it's a bit hard to get rid of some old habits of pronouncing

See, it's an issue. Gilthalion said TOLL-keen (if I read his post right). H-I says toll-KEEN, as does the BBC dramatization of LotR. I say TOLL-kin or TOLL-kee-in. Oh well.

Btw, the dumbest JRRT mispronunciation I ever heard is in the BBC dramatization of The Hobbit, in which Gollum is accented 2d syllable -- ga-LOOM. I swear to God.

I personally pronounce it TOLL-kin (or "The great one," depending on what mood I'm in [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] ) I've heard somebody pronounce it TOLK-yin. Strange

I personally don't think I'm a Tolkienist, I consider myself a Barrow-Wight. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] But for those who don't know what a Barrow-Wight is (Oh so poor uninlightened fools), I'm just a "REALLY REALLY REALLY big Tolkien fan"

"Speaking of obsessions and religions and geekery (not suggesting the three are the same, either), just this afternoon, I was thinking that after I leave school, I should get a job in a bookshop, and then I realised that I'd put them out of business"
Hmm, I was thinking the exact same thing not very long ago (there is also the prospect of getting deals on books)
AAAAAHH!!! I just had another great idea. A bookstore that carries only Tolkien and Tolkien-related books. It would be awesome (however, probably not too profitable; would have to be internet based)

Hmm...I think that people think too much. We're fans...Tolkienists are just a bunch of book worms that love every itty bitty word that Mr. Tolkien has written. ^.^ I like to think of myself as one...do you?

A highwayman comes riding, up to the old inn-door.

Over the cobbles he clatters and clangs in the dark inn-yard.
And he taps with his whip on the shutters, but all is locked and barred.
He whistles a tune to the window, and who should be waiting there
But the landlordĺs black-eyed daughter,
Bess, the landlordĺs daughter,
Plaiting a dark red love-knot into her long black hair"

Tolkien

Just so people know, a few things to take care of just so you know. J.R.R. Tolkien's FULL name is: John Ronald Reuel Tolkien. Naturally, you'd think he'd go by "John" but he didn't. That was his first legal namel, but by friends and family he was addressed as: Ronald.
Another thing, Tolkien is pronounced: Tol-ken. So many people pronounce it wrong, it drives me crazy.

I read in a magazine fans of Tolkien were designated as 'tolkiendili'! Not only does it sound nice, but it fits into the M-E world. What do you think of it?

Personally, I refer to myself as a "Tolkien freak", but...hehe...obsessive Tolkien fan works too...so does Tolkienist, Tolkienian (as in one who dwells in the mind of Tolkien). Tolkien lover is just as good. As long as it's clean in here, I think it's all good (out of here, doesn't have to be clean [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img] )

Tolkeinist sounds like a Tolkien Geek trying to sound scientific....

Or like a professor written two zillion pages on Tolkein, but never understood the magic of his words

Haha. I've actually said something frightingly like this, which is why most of my friends call me "insane Tolkien freak." Although I much prefer "Tolkienophile." It sounds just a little dirty, so people will think twice about it. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] As for pronunciation, I always said TOLL-keen, but I've been hearing lots of people pronounce it toll-KIN. I am lost. Ah well.
