Look

In all cases as far as my eyes can see, it is used as a verb in The Hobbit.

• 1.005 although he looked
• 1.006 and the hobbits had almost forgotten what he looked like.
• 1.008 But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows
• 1.060 and trying to look as if this was all perfectly ordinary

• 3.013 and he looked up at the stars.
• 3.019 “Just look! Bilbo the hobbit on a pony,
• 3.035 That day he looked at the swords they had brought
• 3.042 “not when you look straight at them.
• 4.002 Now they could look back over the lands they had left,
• 4.008 and Kili to look for a better shelter.
• 4.008 if you look,
• 4.014 and look.
• 4.033 when he looked at it,
• 5.087 and was always going back to look at it.
• 5.101 and as he looked towards it,
• 5.142 Look out for the door,’
• 6.001 and he looked back.
• 6.001 Then he looked forward
• 6.003 and look for his friends.
• 6.008 into those abominable tunnels to look for him,

• 6.024 He gave Bilbo a queer look from under his bushy eyebrows,
• 6.039 As they went on Bilbo looked from side to side
• 6.044 Look at the light!’
• 6.067 and looked down upon the ring of the Wargs,
• 6.067 that could look at the sun unblinking,
• 6.086 He used to turn queer if he looked over the edge
• 6.086 when he looked down between his dangling toes
• 6.100 nor remember what it looked like.

• 7.142 and don’t look so glum.

• 8.055 It looks as if my dreams were coming true,’
• 8.058 and looked into a clearing
• 8.078 but obviously he had first of all to look for his friends,
• 8.078 and in what direction he should go first to look for the dwarves.
• 8.096 and look for me?
• 8.111 This time there looked like being a horrible battle.
• 8.114 It looked pretty hopeless.
• 8.126 and look for anything,
• 8.128 and looked round at them.
• 8.134 The king looked sternly on Thorin,
• 9.004 He did not at all like the look of the cavern-mouth,
• 9.006 and though he looked grimly at them,
• 9.045 He has had his share by the looks of it.’
• 9.051 It looked as if he would certainly lose his friends this time
• 9.066 we might have had a look inside,’
• 10.002 and looked across the marshes to the forest.
• 10.002 and now he did not like the look of it
• 10.006 that any water that was not the sea could look so big.
• 10.006 It was so wide that the opposite shores looked small
• 10.010 and a savage look
• 10.020 and he looked it,
• 10.034 and looked from one to the other.
• 10.038 Thorin looked
• 10.039 He had not forgotten the look of the Mountain,
• 11.007 He looked both sad
• 11.008 until lying hidden behind a rock they could look out
• 11.009 they look like spies of evil.’

• 11.014 because it was so small that it looked
• 12.005 Fili and Kili looked uncomfortable
• 12.044 Smaug certainly looked fast asleep,
• 12.046 I only wished to have a look at you
• 12.076 Look!’
• 12.083 and I don’t like the look of him.’
• 13.013 and have a look round before the luck turns.’
• 13.019 At last he looked down upon it,
• 13.035 Royal indeed did Thorin look,
• 13.038 but I expect I look rather absurd.
• 13.055 But look down there!
• 13.071 They looked West
• 14.002 and they looked seldom at it,
• 14.004 Look!’ said one.
• 14.020 Look for the hollow of the left breast
• 14.042 and looked on the ruins of the town.
• 15.028 to the right as one looked outwards from the wall.
• 15.037 The heart is bold that looks on gold;
• 15.050 we look on you as foes
• 16.001 and bade them eagerly to look for it
• 16.022 though perhaps he doesn’t know me to look at.
• 16.040 The Elvenking looked at Bilbo with a new wonder.
• 16.040 than many that have looked more comely

• 18.042 and their hearts looked forward after winter to a spring of joy.
• 19.032 Look at last on meadows green

Blaze

It’s an Olllld English word, first meaning “a torch” and then the fire on the torch, related to many Germanic words bound together by the sense of “shiny”. I am tempted to try “blazin'” as my new enthusiasm-communicating word.

“blaze, n.1.” OED Online, Oxford University Press, June 2020, http://www.oed.com/view/Entry/20003. Accessed 10 July 2020.

See how sparingly JRRT uses it! See how it anchors the very pivot point of the book!

[17.041] ‘Halt!’ cried Gandalf, who appeared suddenly, and stood alone, with arms uplifted, between the advancing dwarves and the ranks awaiting them. ‘Halt!’ he called in a voice like thunder, and his staff blazed forth with a flash like the lightning. ‘Dread has come upon you all! Alas! it has come more swiftly than I guessed. The Goblins are upon you! Bolg of the North is coming, O Dain! whose father you slew in Moria. Behold! the bats are above his army like a sea of locusts. They ride upon wolves and Wargs are in their train!’

• 1.079 The trees like torches blazed with light.
• 6.058 with eyes blazing
• 6.078 till beards blaze, and eyes glaze;
• 7.084 and the forest beginning to blaze
• 8.063 he stumbled forward into the full blaze of the fire
• 8.070 There’s a regular blaze of light
• 12.022 and up he soared blazing into the air
• 12.027 at any moment he might come blazing down
• 14.013 the dragon’s wrath blazed to its height,
• 17.041 and his staff blazed forth

Tree

Chapters 12, 13, 15, 16, and 17 are void of trees, let us make of that what we will.

• 1.017 Anything from climbing trees to visiting elves –
• 1.079 The trees like torches blazed with light.
• 1.083 in a dark sky above the trees.
• 1.117 and axes are used for trees,
• 2.028 dark with trees.
• 2.034 They moved to a clump of trees,
• 2.036 There was a hill some way off with trees on it,
• 2.036 Out of the dark mass of the trees
• 2.039 as they went through the trees
• 2.048 so at last he crept behind a tree just behind William.
• 2.05 before he could duck behind the tree.
• 2.078 “It’s trolls!” said Bilbo from behind a tree.
• 2.107 as he stepped from behind a tree,
• 2.111 going away through the trees.
• 3.007 There seemed to be no trees
• 3.008 and they looked down surprised to see trees below them
• 3.011 the scent of trees was
• 3.012 The trees changed to beech
• 3.013 in the trees:
• 3.018 in the trees;
• 3.021 came out from the trees
• 4.005 where they smashed among the trees far below,
• 5.026 Is taller than trees,
• 5.055 Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
• 5.149 and hunting among the trees.
• 5.149 slipping in and out of the shadow of the trees,
• 6.001 and plains glimpsed occasionally between the trees.
• 6.004 and low trees.
• 6.041 It was the trees at the bottom that saved them.
• 6.041 got behind a tree to shelter from the onslaught of the rocks.
• 6.045 though far away through the trees
• 6.045 “into the branches of the trees.
[06.046]”
• 6.048 they came suddenly to an opening where no trees grew.
• 6.052 Up the trees quick!’ cried Gandalf;
• 6.052 and they ran to the trees at the edge of the glade,
• 6.052 in the trees
• 6.052 like an enormous Christmas tree.
• 6.052 had found a tree into which they could not climb,
• 6.053 He could not get into any tree,
• 6.055 and up trees!
• 6.056 in the easiest tree,
• 6.057 So Dori actually climbed out of the tree
• 6.058 yelping all round the tree
• 6.059 cannot climb trees.
• 6.059 Trees are not very comfortable to sit
• 6.060 This glade in the ring of trees
• 6.060 They left guards at the foot of the tree
• 6.06 till they had smelt out every tree that had anyone
• 6.062 cutting down trees,
• 6.063 and letting the people up the trees escape,
• 6.063 and goblins can climb trees,
• 6.064 stuck up in a tall tree
• 6.064 from the branches of the tree.
• 6.067 in the trees,
• 6.070 and there dead trees,
• 6.070 But the wolf-guards did not leave the trees.
• 6.072 nearest to the trees where the dwarves were.
• 6.072 till the running fire was licking the fuel piled under the trees.
• 6.077 Burn, burn tree and fern!
• 6.079 the flames were under Gandalf’s tree.
• 6.08 Then Gandalf climbed to the top of his tree.
• 6.084 The flames about the trees sprang suddenly up
• 6.086 let alone trees
• 7.005 and below them were trees that looked like oaks
• 7.024 Sometimes they rested under the trees,
• 7.083 into trees with the wolves all underneath,
• 7.088 I suppose that is all that there were up the trees.
• 7.096 and dark at the top like trees of the forest.
• 7.125 and a warg-skin was nailed to a tree just beyond.
• 7.132 and in the distance the line of the river with its trees drawing ever closer.
• 7.133 and scattered trees,
• 7.133 they were the dead branches of trees.
• 7.134 of its outer trees.
• 7.145 that a thing like a bear left the shadow of the trees
• 8.001 made by two great trees
• 8.001 while all the trees leaned over them
• 8.003 often stretched from tree to tree,
• 8.003 often stretched from tree to tree,
• 8.028 in a tree on the other side.
• 8.033 in the trees
• 8.035 to thinner trees
• 8.037 they came to a part where most of the trees were beeches.
• 8.040 Somebody must climb a tree
• 8.040 is to choose the tallest tree
• 8.041 in climbing trees,
• 8.041 in the tree,
• 8.043 he could see no end to the trees
• 8.044 the tree that he had climbed,
• 8.044 so that from its top the trees seemed to swell up
• 8.048 only lit with torches on the trees
• 8.054 and fires were burning under the trees,
• 8.058 where some trees had been felled
• 8.058 and sitting on sawn rings of the felled trees
• 8.058 to some of the trees round about;
• 8.059 bumping crash into trees,
• 8.074 So he sat himself down with his back to a tree,
• 8.081 Standing behind a tree he watched a group of them for some time,
• 8.092 and it dropped senseless off the tree,
• 8.094 then dancing among the trees he began to sing a song
• 8.096 Old fat spider spinning in a tree!
• 8.097 You’ll never catch me up your tree!
• 8.098 swung from tree to tree,
• 8.098 swung from tree to tree,
• 8.102 between two tall trees
• 8.104 and came back to their trees where the dwarves were hung.
• 8.11 and skin hanging on a tree.
• 8.112 and fell down the tree
• 8.113 For he saw spiders swarming up all the neighbouring trees,
• 8.115 from tree to tree.
• 8.115 from tree to tree.
• 8.119 and ‘Attercop’ from among the trees away on the right.
• 8.12 in the trees above them
• 8.126 in front of him at the endless trees;
• 8.132 The beeches were their favourite trees.
• 9.003 that ran into the side of a steep slope covered with trees.
• 9.053 Float beyond the world of trees
• 9.057 of the trees on either bank.
• 9.061 where the trees on either hand grew thinner.
• 9.062 Also he had caught a glimpse of a fire through the trees,
• 10.001 The trees ended.
• 10.007 on huge piles made of forest trees
• 11.004 and before long there was neither bush nor tree,
• 14.014 the trees by the shores shone like copper
• 14.023 felled trees
• 14.043 and they busied themselves felling trees,
• 18.043 under the trees.
• 19.001 in the trees,
• 19.028 and of the trees
• 19.029 Over rock and under tree,
• 19.032 And trees and hills they long have known.

Spread

Oooh, good morning – my fancy is tickled by a verb whose present, perfect and pluperfect are identical.

• 1.079 The fire was red, it flaming spread;
• 1.101 he spread a piece of parchment rather like a map.
• 1.122 and were gradually spreading
• 4.003 and the goblins had spread
• 4.013 So they spread out their wet things on the floor,
• 6.072 a ring which they kept from spreading outwards;
• 6.079 In a moment it spread to the others.
• 9.059 and lay on the top spread out to keep the balance as best he could.
• 10.003 and bogs had spread
• 10.034 The news had spread
• 12.09 it silently spread its wings
• 14.04 Far over Mirkwood tidings spread:

Red

So much to say about this great word, but this morning’s accomplishment is graduating to Python3 to handle my bullet points better.

• 01.032 He hung his red one next to it,
• 1.051 A little red wine,
• 1.058 and red
• 1.079 The fire was red, it flaming spread;
• 1.101 in the light of a big lamp with a red shade
• 1.104 in red on the Mountain,’ said Balin,
• 1.11 in red ink.
• 2.036 a reddish comfortable-looking light,
• 2.04 Suddenly the red light shone out very bright
• 2.042 As for Bilbo walking primly towards the red light,
• 4.018 of a red light before them.
• 4.023 It was lit by a great red fire
• 4.044 The blink of red torches could be seen
• 5.03 Thirty white horses on a red hill,
• 5.134 Not red light,
• 6.005 a head with a red hood on:
• 6.064 one in red,
• 6.07 and their eyes shining as red
• 6.085 a red twinkle on the black floor;
• 7.094 and on the table were two tall red beeswax candles.
• 7.116 green, blue, red, silver-grey, yellow, white;
• 7.126 and red earthenware pots of honey,
• 7.133 but soon the sun rose red
• 7.133 of red deer browsing
• 8.005 and sometimes pairs of yellow or red or green eyes
• 8.037 of the path from the deep red carpets
• 8.054 they saw a red twinkle
• 9.001 like hundreds of red stars.
• 9.005 with red torch-light,
• 9.005 and red leaves,
• 11.032 a red ray of the sun escaped like a finger through a rent
• 12.011 It was a red light steadily getting redder
• 12.011 in the red glow
• 12.028 A red light touched the points of standing rocks.
• 12.044 and piercing ray of red
• 14.011 and the lake rippled red as fire
• 17.048 black and red,
• 17.055 and red light leapt from their eyes.
• 17.062 and a red sunset slashed the West.
• 18.02 he wept until his eyes were red
• 19.027 He mopped his face with a red silk handkerchief –
• 19.036 and red hung on the gate,

Fire

An Aristotelian element today –

• 01.017 and laburnums of fire
• 01.072 and the fire died down,
• 01.079 The fire was red, it flaming spread;
• 01.080 The dragon’s ire more fierce than fire
• 01.123 in fire.
• 02.002 lit fires,
• 02.029 in my nice hole by the fire,
• 02.034 Also the mischief seemed to have got into the fire.
• 02.034 Dwarves can make a fire almost anywhere out of almost anything,
• 02.036 and Gloin went on trying to light the fire,
• 02.036 as it might be a fire or torches twinkling.
• 02.042 he got right up to the fire –
• 02.042 for fire it was –
• 02.043 a very large fire of beech-logs.
• 02.065 in the fire,
• 02.070 and rolling nearly into the fire
• 02.075 and looked at the fire,
• 02.075 and Bifur and Bofur and Bombur piled uncomfortably near the fire.
• 02.079 and he jumped forward to the fire,
• 02.079 all on fire at one end;
• 02.109 “when what we wanted was fire
• 02.116 in the embers of the fire.
• 02.126 Looking behind I saw a fire
• 03.004 before the fire
• 04.013 Oin and Gloin wanted to light a fire at the door
• 04.023 It was lit by a great red fire
• 04.035 and the great fire went off poof!
• 05.103 in Gollum’s eyes had become a green fire,
• 05.134 as of fire or lantern,
• 05.149 Chapter VI OUT OF THE FRYING-PAN INTO THE FIRE
• 06.030 Gandalf had made a special study of bewitchments with fire
• 06.051 out of the frying-pan into the fire’
• 06.064 Then he set one alight with bright blue fire,
• 06.064 and immediately his shaggy coat caught fire,
• 06.065 Wolves are afraid of fire at all times,
• 06.065 and uncanny fire.
• 06.067 and see the tiny flashes of fire,
• 06.070 The wolves that had caught fire
• 06.070 All round the clearing of the Wargs fire was leaping.
• 06.071 Goblins are not afraid of fire,
• 06.072 but they did not put out the fire
• 06.072 That fire they fed with leaves
• 06.072 till the running fire was licking the fuel piled under the trees.
• 06.076 Also naughty little boys that play with fire get punished.’
• 06.079 The bark caught fire,
• 06.084 in crackling fire.
• 06.088 and his thoughts were a mixture of surprise at being saved from the fire,
• 06.099 Later on you might have seen a bright fire
• 06.099 in setting the fire going,
• 07.045 lit only by the fire
• 07.092 which they lit at the fire
• 07.092 and set them up near the fire.
• 07.094 and the fire flickered about them,
• 07.096 The fires
• 07.097 The dwarves were sitting cross-legged on the floor round the fire,
• 07.106 The fire burned low
• 07.106 the fire had now sunk to a few embers;
• 07.122 and the death from the wizard’s fire
• 08.006 so they gave up fires
• 08.048 and fires burning on the ground;
• 08.054 and fires were burning under the trees,
• 08.058 There was a fire
• 08.059 Somebody kicked the fire
• 08.063 he stumbled forward into the full blaze of the fire
• 08.070 and many fires must have been lit suddenly
• 08.071 and across the fires,
• 08.072 The fires leaped up
• 09.062 Also he had caught a glimpse of a fire through the trees,
• 09.063 and far from a fire,
• 10.018 and laughing by a fire
• 10.034 like fire through all the town.
• 12.011 like the noise of a large pot galloping on the fire,
• 12.013 but his fires were low
• 12.021 Fire!
• 12.021 His fire belched forth,
• 12.029 Flickering fires leaped up
• 12.079 but the nostrils sent forth fire
• 12.104 in fire
• 13.032 had rekindled all the fire of their dwarvish hearts;
• 13.071 Chapter XIV FIRE and WATER
• 14.006 As like as not it is the marauding fire of the Dragon,
• 14.011 they could see him as a spark of fire
• 14.011 and the lake rippled red as fire
• 14.014 Fire leaped from the dragon’s jaws.
• 14.015 Fire leaped from thatched roofs
• 14.023 his belly glittered white with sparkling fires of gems
• 14.035 in fire,
• 14.037 unless it was to call loudly for men to bring him fire
• 14.038 he found talk running like fire among the people
• 15.029 there were many lights as of fires
• 15.034 and feasting by the fires.
• 16.008 I wish we could have a fire up here as they have
• 16.024 you will take me along quick to a fire,
• 16.025 Bilbo was sitting beside a warm fire
• 17.050 and each flickered as it fled as if with stinging fire.
• 17.055 in a dying fire.
• 18.001 but his head burned with fire.
• 18.054 So comes snow after fire,
• 19.003 The fire is more shining
• 19.032 Eyes that fire and sword have seen

Night

Oh, friends!!! Guess what! This word appears everywhere except Chapter 5! If you know about me and Chapter 5, you know my toes are tingling.

• 1.079 The winds were moaning in the night.
• 1.123 and come by night to Dale,
• 1.14 I think we have talked long enough for one night,
• 2.001 the party of the night before
• 2.002 and to forget about the night before.
• 2.031 It was nearly night when they had crossed over.
• 2.034 but they could not do it that night,
• 2.037 and wet clothes all the night.
• 2.042 anything at all on a windy night,
• 2.047 Then the night could have been spent cheerily.
• 2.082 it’d take all night,” said a voice.
• 2.083 “or it will take all night.”
• 2.105 “The night’s gettin’ on,
• 2.117 for their night had been disturbed;
• 3.029 and good night!”
• 3.029 Good night!”
• 4.002 The nights were comfortless
• 4.004 in the mountains at night,
• 4.005 There they were sheltering under a hanging rock for the night,
• 4.014 It turned out a good thing that night
• 6.033 in hundreds when night comes on;
• 6.034 and it was Monday night
• 6.035 he had not had a meal since the night before the night before last.
• 6.035 he had not had a meal since the night before the night before last.
• 6.061 had been planned for that very night.
• 6.062 to come by night upon some of the villages nearest the mountains.
• 6.077 To light the night for our delight,
• 6.078 and light the night for our delight,
• 6.09 in his eyrie at night!
• 6.092 and flew away with him into the night leaving Bilbo all alone.
• 6.1 But all night he dreamed of his own house
• 7.023 on the top of the Carrock at night watching the moon
• 7.043 They surprised us at night
• 7.096 The dark night came on outside.
• 7.098 there shadows lay by night and day,
• 7.103 over the wide seas of the night.
• 7.106 Yet in the night he woke:
• 7.113 and heard nothing since the night before,
• 7.117 outside here last night.
• 7.117 the night before last.
• 7.131 it is well protected at night! –
• 7.133 and into the night beneath the moon.
• 7.134 though their night had been short.
• 7.136 if you have not seen each night after dark a great bear going along with us
• 7.146 in the morning as at night,
• 8.005 The nights were the worst.
• 8.006 they tried lighting watch-fires at night,
• 8.006 and sat at night
• 8.035 They were a gloomy party that night,
• 8.046 That night they ate their very last scraps
• 8.06 but to settle down for the night where they were;
• 8.069 Later when the night must have been getting old,
• 8.08 in the night –
• 8.107 and from hanging most of the night
• 8.111 The spiders had caught them pretty easily the night before,
• 8.124 Whether it was one of those they had seen the night before,
• 8.129 as evening wore to black night;
• 8.13 in the night,
• 9.001 once more into the blackness of night,
• 9.029 in the woods that night,
• 9.053 Up from mere and pool at night!
• 9.063 much of his adventures that night,
• 9.063 The rest of the night he had to pass wet
• 10.01 and the shades of night had fallen.
• 10.021 in the night
• 11.001 even for the night so near the shadow of the Mountain.
• 11.002 although the night was already drawing on.
• 11.003 and lonely night
• 11.016 in the camp that night.
• 11.028 That night he was very miserable
• 12.009 that night of the party,
• 12.031 and again through the night
• 12.039 everyone ought to be well inside the tunnel by night.
• 12.042 but it was as dark as night
• 12.059 I thought so last night,’
• 12.06 Let me tell you I ate six ponies last night
• 12.063 for that cup last night?’
• 12.091 and anyway the night has come
• 12.099 I like this silence far less than the uproar of last night.
• 13.057 As a matter of fact two nights
• 13.057 and it might have been one night or a week of nights
• 13.057 and it might have been one night or a week of nights
• 14.004 Last night the watchmen saw them start
• 14.013 No fireworks you ever imagined equalled the sights that night.
• 14.015 Flames unquenchable sprang high into the night.
• 14.038 for the night was bitter
• 14.038 and sorrow that night,
• 15.001 All night one of them had watched,
• 15.017 the third night back from now at the rising of the moon.’
• 15.029 There came a night when suddenly
• 15.031 That night the dwarves slept little.
• 15.06 Chapter XVI A THIEF in THE NIGHT
• 16.007 That night Bilbo made up his mind.
• 16.045 Good night!’
• 17.031 and the night.
• 17.031 He had hurried on through the night,
• 17.044 and they hastened night after night through the mountains,
• 17.044 and they hastened night after night through the mountains,
• 18.008 and comfortable night
• 18.025 before the fall of night;
• 19.011 “And bright are the windows of Night in her tower.
[19.012]”
• 19.016 and you have slept now since the night’s beginning.
• 19.017 A second good night,

Wind

This is “wind, air in motion”, not “to wind, to put in a curved shape” – and may I remind my Dear Word Fans that words with nautical significance have massive entries in the OED? Ye bobs. Two cups of coffee. Magnificent.

• 7.098 The wind was on the withered heath,
