Make

A common word, Germanic in origin, used 220 times in the work. It looks pretty evenly distributed when I eyeball it – except with a dip at the end in Chapter 19.

• 1.004 making a noise like elephants
• 1.012 Make you late for dinner!
• 1.017 Not the man that used to make
• 1.048 He had made quite a dent on the beautiful door;

• 1.122 and they made huger halls
• 1.122 and leisure to make beautiful things just for the fun of it,
• 1.123 and they can’t make a thing for themselves,
• 1.123 that dragons make going from bad to worse.
• 1.125 But apparently they made a map,
• 1.142 and made beds on chairs
• 1.142 One thing he did make his mind up about
• 2.010 in advance to make requisite preparations,
• 2.034 Dwarves can make a fire almost anywhere out of almost anything,
• 2.039 and so they made off,
• 2.039 they made a deal of rustling
• 2.054 and wondering how to make owl-noises
• 2.059 “He wouldn’t make above a mouthful,”
• 2.060 and we might make a pie,” said Bert.
• 2.070 and that of course only made them madder than ever.
• 2.080 It made him howl,
• 2.098 “I made sure it was yellow,” said Bert.

• 3.031 may make a good tale,
• 3.035 They were made
• 4.004 and make war.
• 4.013 then they made their blankets comfortable,

• 4.025 they make very well, or get other people to make to their design,

• 4.036 made the air too thick
• 4.040 He made the hobbit scramble on his shoulders
• 4.041 It burned with a rage that made it gleam
• 4.041 It made no trouble whatever of cutting through the goblin-chains
• 4.044 (they had made the paths themselves),
• 5.002 but that only made him miserabler.
• 5.006 made in Gondolin for the goblin-wars
• 5.006 that such weapons made a great impression
• 5.011 and caves the goblins have made for themselves
• 5.012 but never a ripple did he make.
• 5.015 at least a tasty morsel it’d make us, gollum!’
• 5.015 he made a horrible swallowing noise
• 5.034 and he was so pleased that he made up one on the spot.
• 5.037 What is more they made him hungry;
• 5.042 as you seem to think from the noise you are making.’

• 5.058 That made the hobbit most dreadfully uncomfortable
• 5.083 He thought he was just making an excuse
• 5.087 and made his eyes blink
• 5.118 and make haste.
• 5.118 Make haste!’
• 5.119 it made you invisible!
• 5.133 and roughly made.
• 5.145 was knocked over by a goblin who could not make out what he had bumped into,

• 6.030 Gandalf had made a special study of bewitchments with fire

• 6.065 and the commotion they made filled all the forest.

• 7.005 the eagles must have seen the point they were making for,
• 7.009 (made of the gold that the dwarves gave them)
• 7.012 That Somebody made the steps on the great rock –
• 7.031 and made of unshaped logs:
• 7.031 and rows of hives with bell-shaped tops made of straw.
• 7.045 propped on wooden posts made of single tree-trunks.
• 7.062 and one or two more won’t make much difference,’
• 7.082 That only makes eleven
• 7.084 to see that his tale was making a good impression,
• 7.084 and sang songs making fun of us.
• 7.088 The interruptions had really made Beorn more interested
• 7.090 You may be making it all up,
• 7.095 and the making of things by smith-craft,
• 7.095 and few save the knives were made of metal at all.
• 7.117 I soon saw that Beorn could not have made them all:
• 7.122 might soon be made to find the dwarves,
• 7.126 The making of these was one of his secrets;
• 7.126 though they made one thirsty.
• 7.130 By his advice they were no longer making for the main forest-road
• 7.131 for if they make their raid soon
• 7.132 they made a camp
• 8.001 made by two great trees
• 8.003 but what made the noises he could not see.
• 8.004 who liked holes to make a house
• 8.032 which made it impossible for them to go back
• 8.033 and did not dare to make a move.
• 8.044 His report soon made the others as miserable as he was.
• 8.045 and were only made more angry
• 8.047 He could not make out where he was at all,
• 8.047 in making him believe
• 8.064 Every time they counted themselves it only made thirteen.
• 8.074 But he soon made up his mind
• 8.076 made a great difference to Mr. Baggins.
• 8.078 unless they had been made prisoners by the elves
• 8.080 In the end he made
• 8.080 Having made up his mind he crept along as cleverly as he could.
• 8.081 he saw that it was made by spider-webs
• 8.081 but he could make out many of the words that they said.
• 8.083 Aye, they’ll make fine eating,
• 8.093 but they could make a good guess at the direction
• 8.094 to make them curious, excited
• 8.098 but then you must remember that he had to make it up himself,
• 8.098 They made for his noise far quicker than he had expected.
• 8.105 (which made all the poor dwarves dance
• 8.117 and make
• 8.119 Attercop’ made them so angry
• 8.131 in the making of beautiful
• 9.001 made one last despairing effort
• 9.003 but that did not make much difference,
• 9.003 for the elves were making the dwarves go
• 9.003 The king had ordered them to make haste.
• 9.004 and he only made up his mind not to desert his friends
• 9.008 if killing them makes you angry?’
• 9.009 made the king angrier than ever,
• 9.009 using the road that my people made?
• 9.009 After all the disturbance you have made
• 9.014 Soon however he made up his mind
• 9.025 It must be potent wine to make a wood-elf drowsy;
• 9.026 for he could not prevent the keys from making every now
• 9.031 A pretty fine burglar you make,
• 9.038 made a great fuss about his air-holes
• 9.044 and make merry
• 9.064 They were making up a raft of barrels,
• 10.007 A great bridge made of wood ran out to where
• 10.007 on huge piles made of forest trees
• 10.027 Now make haste
• 10.036 and they began to think their king might have made a serious mistake.
• 10.039 and they made a great fuss of him;
• 11.001 and the rest was made into a store under a tent,
• 11.002 making off swiftly down the river
• 11.003 They made north-west,
• 11.005 other than the wilderness he had made about his lair.
• 11.005 They made their first camp
• 11.012 they made their weary way back to the camp.
• 11.013 It was he that made the dwarves begin the dangerous search
• 11.017 There they made their third camp,
• 12.005 but the others made no pretence of offering –
• 12.007 It was a passage made by dwarves,
• 12.008 to make no sound,
• 12.019 as if it was an old volcano that had made up its mind
• 12.019 and a trampling that made the ground beneath them tremble.
• 12.035 I made the best beginning I could.
• 12.035 that you ever made the vast extent of his wealth clear to me.
• 12.040 Now I will make you an offer.
• 12.062 that there was one smell he could not make out at all,
• 12.070 that your success has made you some bitter enemies?’
• 12.081 why the dragon had made such an awful noise,
• 12.087 it would make even a blind rabbit
• 12.096 the spears that were made
• 12.096 shields made for warriors long dead;
• 12.096 made of five hundred emeralds
• 12.096 had never been made before,
• 12.101 like the crash of battering-rams made of forest oaks
• 13.008 and they made a deal of puffing and shuffling
• 13.013 perhaps we can make a little light,
• 13.014 Can anybody make a light?’
• 13.044 The steps were not made,
• 13.048 carved and made straight
• 13.053 we ought to make for the old look-out post
• 13.064 It was made by the Lake-men for long journeys.)
• 13.067 that was made here as a guardroom.
• 13.067 and the guards were made over comfortable,
• 14.027 we would make him a king.
• 14.042 to make any bargain for the future
• 14.043 Their plans were soon made.
• 15.005 Can you make it out Baggins?’
• 15.006 he could make nothing of it at all)
• 15.026 and in making a new path that led from it.
• 15.035 and made music to soften his mood;
• 15.038 The dwarves of yore made mighty spells,
• 15.060 and it makes me sick.
• 16.007 That night Bilbo made up his mind.
• 16.017 when he left the newly made path
• 16.017 if he was to make for the camp,
• 16.033 Now I will make you an offer! !’
• 17.024 You are not making a very splendid figure
• 17.028 which was made by my folk,
• 17.031 the secret of whose making was possessed by Dain’s people.
• 17.033 so make way or we shall fight you!’
• 17.045 This is the plan that he made
• 17.045 but there was no time to make any other plan,
• 17.048 to make a feint of resistance,
• 17.061 Really it is enough to make one weep,
• 17.062 he had seen a sight that made his heart leap,
• 18.020 before he had the heart to make a joke again.
• 18.020 and you made a great mess of that business with the stone;
• 18.023 The dwarves were making a stand still
• 18.039 when our halls are made fair once more,
• 18.048 some little return should be made for your, er, hospitality.
• 19.005 There a warm welcome was made them,
• 19.045 They are making songs which say that
