Deadman's Dike? Shouldn't it be Deadmen's Dike? --Tik 07:05, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

Not in my editions. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 08:27, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
I had to check this. I found two occurrences of the name: in chapters Elrond's Council (2004 and 2005 editions: p. 244; 1981 (4th) edition, paperback: p. I/320) and Homeward Bound (2004 and 2005 editions: p. 993; 1981 edition: p. III/331); the name is always Deadmen's Dike. Same in the Indexes of 2004 and 2005 editions. Also Robert Foster (The Complete Guide to Middle-earth, paperback edition 1993) has Deadmen's Dike (p. 83). No other editions available to me right now... --Tik 08:55, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
Crap, you're right. It helps if you actually check and don't work from memory. The 50th anniversary edition has Men too. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 08:59, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
