Mark T. Hooker is a visiting scholar at Indiana University's Russian and East European Institute (REEI). Retired, he conducts research for publication.

He is a member of the Board of Academic Advisors for Walking Tree Publishers.[1]

Hooker is credited with coining the term Tolkiennymy (to describe the study of Tolkien's use of names and etymologies from existing languages) and borrowing the Russian word Samizdat (to describe self-published "pirate" translations). He introduced the categories "P-Elvish" and "Q-Elvish" to the study of Tolkien's invented languages. This is on the analogy of "P-Celtic" and "Q-Celtic", which reinforces Tolkien’s assertion that Sindarin was based on Welsh.[2]
