The Lore and Language of Schoolchildren is a scholarly work on childhood culture, derived from folklorists Iona and Peter Opie's collecting of rhymes, games, riddles in the United Kingdom during the 1950s. The discussion of 'Fains or fainites' (p. 151) includes quotations from a 1951 letter by J.R.R. Tolkien.[1]
