J.R.R. Tolkien’s first job on returning from World War I was a brief stint on the staff of the Oxford English Dictionary, investigating and documenting the histories of English words. By this time he had already made dictionaries of his invented languages, but now he began to document their histories instead. Elvish words carry stories inside them no less than English, and we will unpack a handful of examples in both languages.
