Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Khuzdul is a constructed language devised by J. R. R. Tolkien. It is one of the many fictional language set in his Secondary world, often called Middle-earth. It was the secret language of the Dwarven-race. Tolkien noted some similarities between Dwarves and Jews: both were "at once natives and aliens in their habitations, speaking the languages of the country, but with an accent due to their own private tongue...." Tolkien also commented of the Dwarves that "their words are Semitic obviously, constructed to be Semitic." Tolkien based Dwarvish language on the Semitic languages. Khuzdul has triconsonantal roots: kh-z-d, b-n-d, z-g-l.show more
