I wonder, friends, if you’re seeing what I’m seeing? A change in word usage during the war chapters?

Now, I’ve not yet finished trying to figure out what’s going on in Mirkwood. Got distracted by poetry, sorry. But perhaps after Mirkwood, we will go after the war chapters…

• 1.002 and floors tiled
• 1.002 all were on the same floor,
• 1.065 Pour the milk on the pantry floor!
• 1.092 Then he fell flat on the floor,
• 2.113 There were bones on the floor
• 4.013 It had a dry floor
• 4.013 So they spread out their wet things on the floor,
• 4.014 Then he dreamed that the floor of the cave was giving way,
• 4.036 in heaps on the floor,
• 5.001 and he could feel nothing except the stone of the floor.
• 5.002 what felt like a tiny ring of cold metal lying on the floor of the tunnel.
• 5.002 but sat down on the cold floor
• 5.073 and slapped his feet on the floor,
• 5.106 in the floor,
• 5.127 with his flat hands splayed on the floor,
• 5.133 in the floor.
• 6.045 over a floor of pine-needles;
• 6.082 the dark rush of their beating wings smote them to the floor
• 6.085 a red twinkle on the black floor;
• 7.010 (a wholesome one with a pebbly floor)
• 7.069 and bowed so low that their beards swept the stone floor.
• 7.071 and sat flop on the floor looking rather surprised.
• 7.097 The dwarves were sitting cross-legged on the floor round the fire,
• 7.106 a splash of white on the floor came from the high moon,
• 7.108 and had rolled down with a bump from the platform on to the floor.
• 8.046 on the forest floor.
• 8.112 on the floor,
• 9.037 in the middle of the floor waiting to be pushed off.
• 12.012 but rising from the near side of the rocky floor
• 12.013 stretching away across the unseen floors,
• 12.016 across the floor to the nearest edge of the mounds of treasure.
• 12.044 He was just about to step out on to the floor
• 12.071 a devastating sound which shook Bilbo to the floor,
• 12.072 from floor to ceiling like scarlet lightning.
• 13.009 There he lay face downwards on the floor
• 13.016 when Bilbo actually began to stamp on the floor,
• 13.018 start across the floor holding his tiny light aloft.
• 13.022 Bilbo was crossing the floor of the hall.
• 13.039 and sat down on the floor;
• 13.046 and bones were upon the floor
• 14.043 twisted upon the floor of the shallows.
• 18.016 and notched axe were cast upon the floor.
