The Oxford English Dictionary has man-flesh (hyphenated so) as a word attested since the seventeenth century. Tolkien does not hyphenate it and only Tom the troll says it. More on hyphenated words hereafter. I merely observe my own little shudder to learn that the trolls have a word for this particular variety of meat.
- 02.045 “Never a blinking bit of manflesh
Update 2015.06.08: I’m adding the tag “high” to this word to be consistent with later use of the tag – indications of danger are adventurous and thereby earn this tag.
