I've become aware of a great number of articles which deal exclusively with an English translation of a Tolkien language subject. Things like Man of the West and The Wooden Whale- two pages i have encountered recently. Are such pages really nessercary or appropriote to this site? I can see an argument for providing a new page for a Tolkien language translation of a subject commonly known by an english name, but the opposite makes no more sense than providing a page for what say 'Celeborn' translates as into French. Am i just being bloody-minded in my desire for streamlining or would it be good sense to call for a purge of all such pages? Dr Death 10:42, 15 September 2007 (EDT)
