... I give up. I love etymology, and while about 70% of English words actually originate from Latin AFAIK (many via Old French), still many come from Old English words - with much cooler spelling and those awesome þ, ð and æ
Not to mention they were originally written with runes!
Tolkien also used runes, and scattered words like Mearas
made me suspect Old English crept into his writings, which is apparently confirmed by a quick Google search.
I've installed an Icelandic keyboard in order to be able to type þ, ð and æ easily, and looked for some online courses. Let the journey begin!
