Yeah, yeah, everyone knows it. How's this related to my post, btw?

--- Quote from: General Battuta on December 08, 2010, 05:18:43 pm ---Pointed ears are direct from Tolkien. I quote:

--- Quote ---"LAS(1) - *lasse leaf: Q lasse, N lhass; Q lasselanta leaf-fall, autumn, N lhasbelin (*lasskwelene), cf. Q Narqelion [kwel].Lhasgalen Greenleaf, Gnome name of Laurelin. (Some think this is related to the next and *lasse 'ear'. The Quendian ears were more pointed and leaf-shaped than [?human].)

Length I suppose could be argued.

--- End quote ---

Where does that quote come from?

General Battuta:
Tolkien's writings on Elven languages.

That explains a lot, because there weren't any references to leaf-shaped ears on his main works. :nod:

I do believe this thread has gone on long enough  :p
