Throughout [[The Lord of the Rings]], [[Tolkien]] represents the true language of the [[Rohirrim]] with words derived from ancient [[English]]. An example of this is 'wose', a word for a wild man that derives from British myth, an anglicisation of the name used by the Rohirrim for the [[Drúedain]] who lived in the [[Drúadan Forest]]. The actual name for the Drúedain used in Rohan was rógin, and a single [[Wose]] would have been known there as a [[róg]].
