But no one knows if it’s a reference referring to large men who’s compared to trolls or Troll-men. In the second reference there mentioned half-trolls, so some people think that, troll-men could be a cross breed between men and trolls of some sort. Maybe it’s referring to the Olog-hai that is a sort of cross breed between troll and orc or uruk-hai. Because of that the Olog-hai has something near human intelligence.
