Old English

Revision as of 20:51, 29 January 2009 by Éofrith (Talk | contribs)

Old English (sometimes called Anglo-Saxon) was the language Tolkien used to translate Rohirric, the language of the Rohirrim, into. Old English has a similiar relation to modern English (into which Westron is translated) as has Rohirric to Westron, and especially the older language as spoken by the Hobbits in the past.
