::Hi Mith! The reason I made this article is that a while ago I searched on TG for what the asterisk means, since I often encounter it in (linguistic) texts by Tolkien. In any case, a reader ending up studying, for example, an article on the Elvish roots might be more than the average, "casual" reader. And I'm quite sure that such a reader wouldn't mind us using the same jargon as Tolkien did (wouldn't it be more jargonistic to just use a "*" before a word without explaining the use?). --[[User:Morgan|Morgan]] 13:22, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

:::Since more people seem to agree with you Mith (see [[User talk:Morgan#Roots]]) I give in to the majority. However, I still think that if we create on article for a hypothetical word, it should at least be stated in that article that such is the case. --[[User:Morgan|Morgan]] 14:55, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
