If someone should happen across an actual print page of The Letters of J. R. R. Tolkien, no. 180 perhaps they could replace the wording "Novial, &c &c are dead, far" with some text that makes sense. I hardly think that &c and &c aren't actually some other word, perhaps two other artificial languages?

Response: "&c" is an archaic method of writing "et cetera". There is no mistake. --Mindovamatter 04:02, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

  • I'm adding the checkcopyright tag below in respect of "Leaf by Niggle", of which we're currently quoting at least 20%. The quotes from "English and Welsh" could do with shortening as well. I'll deal with this in the next few days and remove the tag. --Antiquary 19:36, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Misattributions[edit]

"A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities." A Tolkienist article corrects this. This appears to be a modernized, shortened version of a Nathaniel Hawthorne quote: "If his inmost heart could have been laid open, there would have been discovered that dream of undying fame, which, dream as it is, is more powerful than a thousand realities." --Chad Schultz (talk) 07:24, 29 December 2013 (UTC)
