I need help on adding an English gloss to the wordlist. Tolkien writes that the meaing of T ''can-'' is "to summons or name a person" (PM:362). To my non-native ears, the verb "to summons" sounds strange -- I would write "to summon ...a person". Do you have an explanation? --[[User:Morgan|Morgan]] 19:26, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

:Yes, it does sound odd. The only use of "summons" that I can think of is in relation to a court summons, but that wouldn't really explain it because that would still be a noun. Given that "to summons" appears twice in that footnote it seems intentional. There must be an explanation, but I can't think of one.--{{User:KingAragorn/sig}} 22:44, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

Welcome to KingAragorn/2013's talk page.

Artworks by Ivanneth

Hello! You have changed description of artworks by Ivanneth attributing them to me (I am Karolina Węgrzyn), but that's misunderstanding. All works by Ivanneth I have uploaded do belong to her. You can always verify it at her website: Ivanneth's portfolio. I am moving back the changes, Regards! Sirielle 00:52, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Portal:Languages

Shouldn't the Portal:Languages be available from the main page?--Morgan 08:46, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

I would like that.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  09:30, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
