Reduplicatives

It’s time to separate out this very lovely sound from similar ones in our text. Reduplicatives are very simply sounds which have been duplicated for sonorous effect. I call my dog “Sgiob-Sgiob” when I suddenly need two syllables to make a minor-third calling sound. We hear it a lot used with children learning to speak, as well.

The roll-roll-roll repetition here both suits the syllables to the beat of the work song and to mimic the sound of the action described thereby.

• 09.049 roll-roll-rolling down the hole!

Tune

I am fascinated! To think of how the sounds of communication mattered to Tolkien… but look!

And to my Word Fans who have noticed the squall, flurry, whirlwind, or gust of words in the last two days, tomorrow morning we get a treat toward which I have been rushing!

• 3.017 to our tune
• 13.034 in tune.

End

Oooooh, the ends of worms!

• 1.001 filled with the ends of worms
• 1.003 in the end.
• 1.005 and there they remained to the end of their days.
• 1.013 By this he meant that the conversation was at an end.
• 1.092 Gandalf struck a blue light on the end of his magic staff,
• 2.019 To the end of his days
• 2.025 before you get to the journey’s end.
• 2.034 They decided in the end
• 2.079 all on fire at one end;
• 2.079 and Bert got that end
• 2.080 And so the fight ended.
• 2.086 In the end they decided to mince them fine
• 2.107 and made an end of them.
• 3.010 but they seemed no nearer to the end of the search
• 3.017 Till the end of the dark
• 3.033 if we ever get to the end of it.
• 4.001 and led nowhere or to bad ends;
• 4.008 The end of their argument was
• 4.012 and by its light they explored the cave from end to end.
• 4.012 and by its light they explored the cave from end to end.
• 4.013 At one end there was room for the ponies;
• 4.024 and dragged them to the far end of the cavern
• 4.024 with little Bilbo tugging at the end of the row.
• 4.038 at the end of the line,
• 5.009 The tunnel seemed to have no end.
• 5.012 so there their road ended
• 5.014 and at the end of his way
• 5.038 Ends life, kills laughter.
• 5.074 but he did not feel at all sure how the game was going to end,
• 6.020 ended Bilbo;
• 6.080 That would have been the end of him,
• 6.088 The flight ended only just
• 6.100 So ended the adventures of the Misty Mountains.
• 7.007 till your eyries receive you at the journey’s end!’
• 7.009 in at the end of this tale
• 7.010 and near the end of the stony ford.
• 7.066 or it will be supper-time before it is ended.’
• 7.093 while at the far end
• 7.117 ended Gandalf, and he sat a long while silent.
• 7.128 the dragon was waiting at the end.
• 7.130 was overgrown and disused at the eastern end
• 7.142 Think of the treasure at the end,
• 8.004 and it seemed to offer even less hope of any ending.
• 8.017 and on the end of the longest
• 8.040 Is there no end
• 8.042 In the end he poked his head
• 8.043 he could see no end to the trees
• 8.050 without any great hope of ever getting to the end
• 8.057 In the end,
• 8.080 In the end he made
• 8.091 I’ll soon put an end to that,’
• 8.108 But there were still five dwarves hanging at the end of the branch
• 8.109 Bilbo immediately went to the end
• 8.116 In the end Bilbo could think of no plan
• 9.003 and at the far end were gates before the mouth of a huge cave
• 9.017 in the end,
• 9.035 In the end,
• 9.037 as they could not easily be opened at the end without a deal of noise,
• 9.061 and was walled at the eastern end
• 9.063 for now we are drawing near the end of the eastward journey
• 9.063 in the end by his wet footsteps
• 10.001 The trees ended.
• 10.003 and little used end
• 10.004 in the end by the only road that was any good.
• 10.006 but it was so long that its northerly end,
• 10.006 At the southern end
• 10.014 for hours on end –
• 10.030 at the lower end
• 10.041 they will all come to a bad end,
• 10.041 in the end.
• 10.042 At the end of a fortnight
• 11.001 At the end of the third day,
• 11.004 They knew that they were drawing near to the end of their journey,
• 11.004 and that it might be a very horrible end.
• 11.005 which ended
• 11.008 but they went on beyond the end of the southern spur,
• 11.012 They were at the end of their journey,
• 11.012 from the end of their quest.
• 11.014 but at its inner end a flat wall rose up that
• 11.027 in the end.
• 12.007 to some distant end
• 12.012 and you can picture him coming to the end of the tunnel,
• 12.030 That’ll be the end of our poor beasts!’
• 12.054 I came from the end of a bag,
• 12.062 You’ll come to a bad end,
• 12.070 and to keep his end up,
• 12.071 and a nasty end.
• 12.079 but his mistake at the end shook him into better sense.
• 12.090 was more likely to end
• 12.091 and you can trust him to guess where the other end of the tunnel is.
• 12.092 Why has not Smaug blocked the lower end,
• 13.002 But they found that the upper end of the tunnel
• 13.003 This is the end.
• 13.005 when I knew there was a dragon at the other end,
• 13.015 just where he had left them at the end of the tunnel.
• 13.016 in the end,
• 13.039 what the end of it all would be.
• 13.046 at the further end,
• 14.002 at the far end of the lake,
• 14.008 and the northern end of the lake turned golden.
• 14.024 And that was the end of Smaug and Esgaroth,
• 14.044 at the end of the lake
• 16.045 Things are drawing towards the end now,
• 17.037 in the end it must come to unhappy blows.’
• 17.048 round the spur’s end
• 17.060 some last blast of magic before the end.
• 17.061 and all the rest come to a bad end;
• 18.018 if it must end so;
• 18.037 In the end he would only take two small chests,
• 18.043 and round its northern end
• 18.054 and even dragons have their ending!’
• 19.028 As all things come to an end,
• 19.037 and in the end to save time Bilbo had to buy back
• 19.040 he remained very happy to the end of his days,
• 19.044 The old Master had come to a bad end.

Listen

It turns out that the “t” in “listen” is a muddling up error from the verb “list, to be pleasing.” It doesn’t belong there. Bless.

• 2.108 listening to the trolls making plans for roasting them
• 3.017 And listen and hark
• 3.031 and not much to listen to;
• 5.010 when he listened hard,
• 5.112 and gurgling sound horrible to listen to.
• 6.004 He stopped and listened.
• 6.063 This was dreadful talk to listen to,
• 6.064 listening to their growling
• 6.094 As Bilbo listened to the talk of Gandalf
• 7.095 The dwarves listened
• 8.001 and listened.
• 8.071 and listening for a while,
• 9.019 listening to the talk of the king’s servants,
• 10.003 As he listened to the talk of the raftmen
• 12.082 listening to all
• 12.083 I believe he is listening,
• 12.090 All the while they talked the thrush listened,
• 12.098 he was only half listening to them.
• 13.008 and listened,
• 13.042 listening
• 15.004 as if to listen;
• 15.004 and again he listened.
• 15.018 and listen to the raven’s news.
• 15.020 If you will listen to my counsel,
• 16.047 without listening to the old dwarf’s thanks
• 17.001 asking whether Thorin would now listen to another embassy,
• 17.016 and listen first to what he has to say!’
• 19.005 and listen,

Fly (verb)

To fly through the air and to fly as movement in a rush even if on the ground are the same word. Fly and “flee” are so very interconnected that … well. Let’s just say that many and many a happy moment were spent reading the very fine print.

• 1.123 with the dwarves flying south or getting killed,
• 1.123 One day he flew up into the air
• 2.031 between the flying rags.
• 2.042 any more than fly like a bat.
• 3.017 Or will you be flying?
• 3.017 To fly would be folly,
• 5.130 and grabbed as the hobbit flew over him,
• 6.069 and they flew away from the mountains,
• 6.075 Fly away little birds!
• 6.075 Fly away if you can!
• 6.082 Other birds flew to the tree-tops
• 6.092 Soon another eagle flew up.
• 6.092 and flew away with him into the night leaving Bilbo all alone.
• 6.093 This time he flew only a short way.
• 6.093 There was no path down on to it save by flying;
• 7.003 What is finer than flying?’
• 7.031 The noise of the giant bees flying to
• 7.102 and flying smoke was in the air.
• 8.029 There was a flying sound of hooves on the path ahead.
• 8.029 Out of the gloom came suddenly the shape of a flying deer.
• 10.018 that they had seen him flying
• 12.027 or fly whirling round
• 12.029 They had barely time to fly back to the tunnel,
• 12.031 they could hear the roar of the flying dragon grow
• 12.084 to fly to the Men of the Lake
• 12.090 and flew away.
• 14.001 and flew off
• 14.020 as he flies
• 14.021 flying low,
• 14.040 and their swift-flying messengers flew
• 15.001 Their companies came flying from the South;
• 15.004 he flew towards them
• 15.011 and immediately flew away.
• 15.013 he could hardly fly,
• 15.022 Then off he slowly flew.
• 15.053 Begone now ere our arrows fly!
• 17.046 flying lower,
• 17.049 nor does it stop flying arrows
• 17.052 Already many of the goblins were flying

Stay

The verb “stay” meaning to cease movement and the verb “stay” meaning to stop movement, and the noun stay meaning a support are all from French and ultimately Latin stare, to stand. Not so nautical stays, which are also supports, but they’re of German root stock and related to “steel.”

• 1.046 and whether they would all stay to supper.
• 1.061 I suppose you will all stay to supper?’
• 1.063 and stayed talking to Gandalf –
• 3.017 O! Will you be staying,
• 3.017 To stay would be jolly
• 3.024 Are you going to stay a bit
• 3.025 Bilbo would have liked to stay a while.
• 3.026 and would not stay.
• 3.031 They stayed long
• 3.031 Yet there is little to tell about their stay.
• 8.113 Don’t stay up there
• 9.051 and have to stay lurking as a permanent burglar
• 10.040 about keys or barrels while the dwarves stayed
• 11.001 but none of the men of the town would stay with them
• 12.009 and the whole lot could stay here for ever,
• 12.030 and here we shall have to stay,
• 12.039 but stay where we are.
• 14.031 The wise will stay here
• 17.016 Stay! Your wish is granted!’
• 18.027 They would not stay here,
• 18.043 even though the king bade them stay a while
• 18.051 and there for a while they both stayed.

Months

Though the adventure begins in 2941, April 25 and ends 2942, June 2 , there are only three named months in the work: April, May, and June.

My mother knew a sibb of triplets named April, May, and June.

Thank you to the LotR Project for the timeline! I might quibble with the dates in late 2941, however because “last moon of autumn on the threshhold of winter” [03.047], but they might have more nformation about lunar eccentricies than my back of the envelope calculation — the detail is that the sun and moon are in the sky together which is not guaranteed on any particular full moon, though it is usually so. Of course is it a full moon that is implied? Ahhhh, calendars. They are like warm baths.

April • 1.071 it was April –
April • 1.128 And Thrain your father went away on the twenty-first of April,
May • 2.026 just before May,
May • 2.028 Mostly it had been as good as May can be,
June • 2.029 “To think it will soon be June!” grumbled Bilbo,
June • 3.016 in June
June • 3.025 in June under the stars,
May • 8.047 since they started their journey that May morning long ago.
June • 11.012 Only in June they had been guests
May • 16.026 under the clock on his mantelpiece in May!
May • 19.001 It was on May the first
June • 19.027 for now June had brought summer,
June • 19.03 And through the merry flowers of June,
June • 19.036 on June the Twenty-second

Know

Common word, commonly used.

Update one week later: I have resisted for a full week any reference to Sir Terry Pratchett’s magnificent created word “Knowlessman” (from Guards! Guards!). Apparently the word has wandered all over fandoms and tropes. Just magnificent. I was searching because I kind of hoped to find it was actually an obsolete word. Nope, Pratchett just had the knack of inventing words that rang with archaism. What I did find, however, was “knowness”, acknowledgement, a darned rare word with the flavor of “this bag of coin right here that I am handing you is my knowness, because I certainly wouldn’t be handing coin over to just anyone who claimed they were my lord.”

• 1.004 Now you know enough to go on with.
• 1.015 I don’t think I know your name?’
• 1.016 and I do know your name,
• 1.016 And you do know my name,
• 1.033 but he liked to know them before they arrived,
• 1.033 he knew his duty
• 1.058 Seems to know as much
• 1.091 well known to us all.
• 1.092 without telling any one there anything that was not known already.
• 1.103 And I know where Mirkwood is,
• 1.106 but how do we know that it is secret any longer?
• 1.106 to find out anything there is to know about those caves.’
• 1.111 we don’t know without going to see.
• 1.115 if I know anything about the roads East,’
• 1.119 First I should like to know
• 1.121 Also I should like to know about risks,
• 1.123 you know,
• 1.123 Indeed they hardly know a good bit of work from a bad,
• 1.123 What goes on there now I don’t know for certain,
• 1.124 in the proper time I should know.
• 1.125 which only they knew about.
• 1.125 and I should like to know how Gandalf got hold of it,
• 1.132 How he got there I don’t know,
• 1.140 And well, don’t you know,
• 2.038 “These parts are none too well known,
• 2.048 Bilbo knew it.
• 2.053 “Lumme, if I knows!
• 2.072 knew what was happening,
• 2.089 I’d like to know.”
• 2.106 for trolls, as you probably know,
• 2.115 we shall know more about them.”
• 2.126 So now you know.
• 3.006 as some of you may know.
• 3.009 who seemed to know his way about pretty well.
• 3.016 No knowing, no knowing
• 3.016 No knowing, no knowing
• 3.025 with these people that seemed to know his names
• 3.025 Elves know a lot
• 3.025 and know what is going on among the peoples of the land,
• 3.035 Elrond knew all about runes of every kind.
• 3.043 until goodness knows when.
• 3.047 said Thorin, “is as all should know
• 4.002 Bilbo knew there lay his own country of safe
• 4.003 and he knew how evil
• 4.003 and Gandalf was a wise enough wizard to know it.
• 4.004 He knew that something unexpected might happen,
• 4.004 You know how terrific a really big thunderstorm can be
• 4.007 “Well, if you know of anywhere better,
• 4.010 who knew that caves up
• 4.011 though everybody knew they could not have been long about it;
• 4.012 you don’t know how far they go back, sometimes,
• 4.014 goodness knows where to.
• 4.017 but the goblins knew their way,
• 4.030 in fact I should like to know all about you.
• 4.030 I know too much about your folk already;
• 4.031 not quite knowing what to say all at once
• 4.033 They knew the sword at once.
• 4.042 and no knowing quite where we are,
• 4.044 and these goblins knew the way better
• 5.002 but he did not know it.
• 5.004 Goodness knows what the striking of matches
• 5.009 All he knew was that it was still going down pretty steadily
• 5.009 as he knew by the glimmer of his sword,
• 5.009 I do not know how long he kept on like this,
• 5.010 He did not know whether it was just a pool
• 5.011 goodness only knows how many years ago,
• 5.012 I don’t know where he came from,
• 5.019 and I don’t know where I am;
• 5.019 and I don’t want to know,
• 5.031 and Gollum knew the answer as well as you do.
• 5.047 I imagine you know the answer,
• 5.056 and that he ought to know it,
• 5.077 He knew,
• 5.084 of which Bilbo knew nothing,
• 5.087 But who knows how Gollum came by that present,
• 5.098 As far as Bilbo knew,
• 5.114 We can’t know till we find the nassty creature
• 5.114 But it doesn’t know
• 5.114 It doesn’t know,
• 5.114 It doesn’t know the way out.
• 5.115 It knows.
• 5.115 It knows a way in,
• 5.115 it must know a way out, yes.
• 5.129 had he known it,
• 5.133 not knowing that even the big ones,
• 6.001 but he did not know where he was.
• 6.008 The dwarves wanted to know
• 6.012 as you know quite well,
• 6.015 Oh, just crept along, you know –
• 6.019 Then they wanted to know all about his adventures
• 6.020 He thought I really knew the way out,
• 6.025 He wanted to know how the wizard had turned up again,
• 6.030 The rest we all know –
• 6.030 except that Gandalf knew all about the back-door,
• 6.030 As a matter of fact it was well known to anybody
• 6.050 but he knew that noise.
• 6.069 to know what was afoot;
• 6.088 Now I know what a piece of bacon feels like
• 6.089 because the bacon knows
• 6.094 and the eagle-lord appeared to know one another slightly,
• 7.008 answered Gandalf, who knew the correct reply.
• 7.012 and you don’t know where you are.
• 7.012 But there is somebody that I know of,
• 7.016 and he knows it well.’
• 7.017 Who knows it?’
• 7.018 or heaven knows what will happen.
• 7.020 If you must know more,
• 7.040 Well, now I know who you are,
• 7.082 in the old days he had known the very part of the mountains
• 7.085 and they know it.’
• 7.095 for they knew
• 7.118 Bilbo thought he knew what the wizard meant.
• 7.123 you would take the word of no one that you did not know
• 7.126 I know,
• 7.141 Then they knew
• 8.010 for by now they knew Bilbo had the sharpest eyes among them.
• 8.035 Yet if they had known more about it
• 8.035 they would have known that they were at last drawing towards the eastern edge,
• 8.036 But they did not know this,
• 8.103 though I don’t suppose they knew what it was,
• 8.104 he knew,
• 8.104 and before the spider knew what was happening it felt his sting
• 8.125 They knew only too well that they would soon all have been dead,
• 8.125 Knowing the truth about the vanishing
• 8.127 Now I know!
• 8.133 All this was well known to every dwarf,
• 8.138 I don’t know,
• 9.003 and neither he nor the others knew where they had started from anyway.
• 9.009 I have a right to know
• 9.010 until one at least of them was willing to tell him all he wanted to know.
• 9.011 and indeed he did not know where
• 9.013 and after a time he got to know his way about very well.
• 9.027 and know what Bilbo was going to do,
• 9.028 goodness knows where the king will put you next,
• 9.037 as Bilbo knew,
• 9.051 He did not know the way by land
• 9.053 Back to lands you once did know!
• 9.053 Back to lands you once did know!
• 9.054 and not knowing what else to do,
• 9.062 and he knew now only too well what it was
• 10.004 if he had known that news of this had reached Gandalf far away
• 10.004 But Bilbo did not know it.
• 10.005 All he knew was that the river seemed to go on
• 10.006 Only from the map did Bilbo know that away up there,
• 10.036 Indeed such excitement had not been known
• 10.036 They did not know of course how Thorin had escaped,
• 10.040 Still, I daresay, more was guessed than was known,
• 10.040 In any case the king knew now the dwarves’ errand,
• 10.043 and there is no knowing what a dwarf will not dare
• 11.004 They knew that they were drawing near to the end of their journey,
• 11.027 I might have known that something dreadful
• 12.003 and he knew what he was driving at.
• 12.020 but they know it to an ounce as a rule,
• 12.041 but it was not so bad now he knew,
• 12.041 Had he known more about dragons
• 12.058 since you know all about Bilbo’s adventures
• 12.062 I know the smell
• 12.062 and not know it!
• 12.065 You don’t know everything,
• 12.067 I don’t know if it has occurred to you that,
• 12.067 and he knew his guesses were not far out,
• 12.076 He did not know
• 12.081 especially wanting to know
• 12.087 I am sure he knows we came
• 12.089 to know of the bare patch
• 12.091 Smaug knows now how I came down to his hall,
• 12.093 I don’t know,
• 12.093 I don’t know –
• 12.094 for no one knew whether or how they could get it open again
• 12.095 We knew it would be a desperate venture,’
• 12.095 and we know that still;
• 12.103 I don’t know your smell,
• 13.005 when I knew there was a dragon at the other end,
• 13.012 and found that he did not know
• 13.018 but they did not know the reason.
• 13.032 I don’t know.
• 13.043 Thorin knew every passage
• 13.053 And I think I know which way we should go:
• 13.059 I would give a good breakfast to know.
• 13.064 (If you want to know what cram is,
• 13.064 I can only say that I don’t know the recipe;
• 14.006 the only king under the Mountain we have ever known.’
• 14.018 though they knew his worth
• 14.040 and already knew much of what had happened.
• 15.010 I knew many among the ravens of the rocks
• 15.014 but he was well known to you once.
• 15.028 and by that time they knew
• 16.022 if you want to know.
• 16.022 I know your king well by sight,
• 16.022 though perhaps he doesn’t know me to look at.
• 16.026 Really you know,’
• 16.027 However you don’t know Thorin Oakenshield
• 16.039 don’t you know.
• 17.036 whatever they may know of battle
• 17.044 Not even the ravens knew of their coming
• 17.044 How much Gandalf knew cannot be said,
• 17.066 and knew no more.
• 18.019 in you of good than you know,
• 18.022 no one knew how or from where.
• 18.036 I don’t know.
• 18.036 And I don’t know what I should have done with it
• 18.048 don’t you know,’
• 19.005 Most of the tale he knew,
• 19.005 when a part of the story which he did not yet know came in.
• 19.028 were as well known to him as his hands
• 19.032 And trees and hills they long have known.
• 7.082 and sit down!
• 7.082 and of their scramble down the stone-slide
• 7.084 when the goblins came down from the hills
• 7.099 The wind came down from mountains cold,
• 7.106 which was peering down through the smoke-hole
• 7.108 and had rolled down with a bump from the platform on to the floor.
• 7.118 and the goblins down here?
• 7.13 their path would have led them down a stream from the mountains
• 7.13 and though here the Mountains too drew down nearer,
• 7.153 and rode down into the West.
• 8.002 stabbed down thin
• 8.004 There was no movement of air down under the forest-roof,
• 8.005 And sometimes they would gleam down
• 8.007 before they managed to bring one down
• 8.015 which is low just there where the path goes down into the water.’
• 8.021 before it floated off down the current.
• 8.028 Since it did not fall down again,
• 8.03 when the hart bore down on him,
• 8.037 A few leaves came rustling down
• 8.041 and how he was going to get down again
• 8.043 who were now simply stamping with impatience down below,
• 8.043 there was no food to go back to down below.
• 8.044 and he climbed down full of despair.
• 8.048 he sat down
• 8.05 before they lay down
• 8.05 and that he wanted to lie down
• 8.06 but to settle down for the night where they were;
• 8.068 as he lay down beside the dwarves
• 8.074 So he sat himself down with his back to a tree,
• 8.075 and then he fell down
• 8.097 Down you drop!
• 8.104 if a spider had not luckily left a rope hanging down;
• 8.112 and fell down the tree
• 8.113 Come down!
• 8.113 Come down!’
• 8.114 Down the dwarves scrambled or jumped or dropped,
• 8.12 and throwing down their long clinging threads.
• 9.002 and sat down
• 9.003 There the great beeches came right down to the bank,
• 9.018 There the rocky roof came down
• 9.02 to a place far down the river where the bank jutted out,
• 9.022 The guards were tramping away down the passages
• 9.025 and sat down at a table on which two large flagons were set.
• 9.03 far down
• 9.035 and they calmed down.
• 9.035 down into the lowest cellars they crept.
• 9.037 some elves were under orders to come down
• 9.041 I have no wish to waste time down here
• 9.044 and waiting down here,
• 9.049 roll-roll-rolling down the hole!
• 9.049 Down they go, down they bump!
• 9.049 Down they go, down they bump!
• 9.05 but down they all went,
• 9.05 and bobbing away down the current.
• 9.053 Down the swift dark stream you go
• 9.053 Down the swift dark stream you go
• 9.054 Down into the water he fell,
• 9.06 and twisted off down the stream,
• 9.061 flowing down
• 9.064 and there was a merry racket down by the river.
• 9.064 down the stream to Lake-town.
• 9.064 He scrambled down as fast as his stiff legs would take him
• 9.068 and went sailing away down,
• 9.068 down towards the Lake.
• 10.001 that came down upon their left.
• 10.006 the Running River came down
• 10.01 if they could have seen what happened down by the shore,
• 10.013 but they lay down
• 10.024 lay down your arms!’
• 10.028 going down to the surface of the lake.
• 10.038 coming down the river to Lake-town.
• 10.042 It would not do to let everything cool down with delay.
• 10.045 from the great steps of the town-hall that went down to the lake.
• 11.002 making off swiftly down the river
• 11.014 down the valley
• 11.014 Looking down they saw that they were at the top of the cliff
• 11.014 and were gazing down on to their own camp below.
• 11.015 “and then at evening began their long climb down.
[11.016]”
• 11.016 The others went down the valley
• 11.017 Down the same way they were able occasionally
• 11.026 till they hang down the cliff to the valley
• 11.028 some were exercising the ponies down below,
• 11.038 in and down.
• 12.008 he crept noiselessly down,
• 12.008 down, down into the dark.
• 12.008 down, down into the dark.
• 12.01 right ahead down there?’
• 12.011 down there
• 12.017 than when he was going down,
• 12.019 from far down
• 12.02 and cowered down in fright.
• 12.02 from far above that came down through it
• 12.024 they are down
• 12.027 at any moment he might come blazing down
• 12.031 They crept further down the tunnel,
• 12.04 and will creep down this very noon –
• 12.041 down into the Mountain.
• 12.042 soon faded as he went down.
• 12.059 I haven’t been down that way
• 12.081 right down to the skin.
• 12.091 Smaug knows now how I came down to his hall,
• 12.094 and down the tunnel.
• 12.094 not far down from the half-open door
• 12.101 They had hardly gone any distance down the tunnel
• 12.101 They fled further down the tunnel
• 12.102 down the wind
• 13.005 I am going down the tunnel once again.
• 13.005 Anyway the only way out is down.
• 13.008 Down, down they went.
• 13.008 Down, down they went.
• 13.015 when Bilbo fell forward down the step with a bump into the hall,
• 13.019 At last he looked down upon it,
• 13.022 Down the other side of the great mound he climbed,
• 13.035 Now the dwarves took down mail
• 13.039 and sat down on the floor;
• 13.043 and went down wide echoing ways,
• 13.049 and foamed down towards the valley.
• 13.055 But look down there!
• 13.059 I hope he is not up on the Mountain looking down at us!’
• 13.071 and some threw themselves down at once
• 14.002 the Running River came down from the North.
• 14.011 was thrown down
• 14.014 Then down he swooped
• 14.015 as he hurtled down
• 14.015 and smashed down.
• 14.016 Weapons were flung down.
• 14.016 and burned down to the surface of the lake.
• 14.018 down the Running River from the ruin long ago.
• 14.023 and dived down
• 14.023 and crashed down from on high
• 14.025 and down the wind came the voices
• 14.032 and down with Moneybags,’
• 14.033 What sort of gold have they sent down the river to reward us?
• 14.042 he hastened now down the river to the Long Lake.
• 14.043 sent down from the Forest.
• 15.027 far down the banks
• 15.034 and to go down
• 15.053 laying down your arms before you approach the threshold.’
• 16.016 slipped down over the wall,
• 16.017 and climbed down towards the lower course of the stream,
• 16.046 and then he sat down on the wall
• 17.016 Put him down,
• 17.02 Get down now to your friends!’
• 17.02 or I will throw you down.’
• 17.022 Get down!’
• 17.026 And so Bilbo was swung down from the wall,
• 17.032 and there they laid down their weapons
• 17.044 ready to sweep down
• 17.05 a thousand of their spearmen leapt down
• 17.052 back down the river to escape from the trap;
• 17.053 and others were streaming down recklessly,
• 17.053 by paths that ran down from the main mass
• 17.056 Rocks were hurled down from on high
• 17.056 leapt down to the falls’ foot,
• 17.058 Down, heedless of order,
• 17.058 Down too came many of the Lake-men,
• 17.059 were being slowly beaten down.
• 17.061 or driven down
• 17.064 The eagles were coming down the wind,
• 18.012 I will carry you down to the camp
• 18.013 It was not long before Bilbo was set down before a tent
• 18.021 they had come speeding down the gale
• 18.021 or driving them down shrieking
• 18.024 and pulled down Bolg himself
• 19.001 As they rode down the steep path,
• 19.001 and as soon as the riders came down
• 19.043 and down the Running River;
