The Tolkien Road

A podcast about Middle-earth and all things Tolkien.

0064 – Tolkien’s Languages

Hey there fellow travelers! Welcome to The Tolkien Road, a long walk through the works and philosophy of J.R.R. Tolkien. On this episode, we interview Gabriel Blanchard, a fellow Tolkien enthusiast, about Tolkien’s languages. Gabriel really knows his stuff, and I think you’ll find this discussion very helpful when it comes to understanding the different languages that Tolkien created. Also, be sure to check out for the show notes as well as links to some helpful resources, Gabriel’s blog, and his recently published book. Thanks for listening, and enjoy the show!
