The suffixes -dur and -dil have two seperate meanings. dur incdicates devotion to an object or idea, while dil indicates subserviance. A (not entirely good) analogy would be a common worshipper versus a priest, the second bearing more responsibility. Tolkien was very specific with his suffix definitions and deliberately seperated the two words. --Ebakunin 16:22, 19 June 2006 (EDT)

Hmm. If you're sure you're right go ahead and change it. --Narfil Palùrfalas 16:45, 19 June 2006 (EDT)
