In Peter J's movies, does anyone know what John Rhys-Davies says to Haldir in Lothlorien that is "not very nice"? --Quidon88 13:35, 15 December 2006 (EST)

According to the Fellowship of the Word-smiths, what he said was thus:
Ishkhaqwi ai durugnul
Which is neo-Khuzdul for "I spit upon your graves". --Narfil Palùrfalas 14:13, 15 December 2006 (EST)

[edit] Untrue?

Bunchofnumbers, it does look that way... The corpus isn't that big: Azaghâl, Gamil Zirak, that's Khuzdul. The Petty-dwarves' names probably some dialect. Only Telchar is Sindarin. -- Ederchil 11:03, 14 March 2008 (EDT)
