Tolkien once termed Welsh 'the elder language of the men of Britain'. This talk explores how the sounds and grammar of Welsh captured Tolkien's imagination and are reflected in Sindarin, one of the two major Elvish languages which he created.
This series, convened by Stuart Lee, presents five Oxford academics who examine the medieval languages that J.R.R. Tolkien studied and taught. Each lecture presents a short introduction to a language and its literature.
