Discussing: Dwarvish


I was reviewing some of my notes on Dwarves, their customs, language etc. and found a short note about Dwarvish 'gesture code', but without a source reference. I'm fairly certain I didn't make this up, but cannot for the life of me find the reference in the HoME. If anyone could point me to the correct volume(s), I'd be much obliged!



Re: Dwarvish

You weren't imagining things! I remembered the name (iglishmêk), but it isn't indexed, and I only found it by going to Ardalambion, where the mention did have a proper reference: it's in War of the Jewels, Quendi and Eldar, pp. 395-396 in my edition.



Re: Dwarvish

Thanks, this is perfect!
