Well "meltier" I could not find in a dictionary
...in the context of LotR... I guess you could say they "melt away" as in disappear into the darkness or environment?
What does the part in the parentheses mean?
Sauron attempts to take over the rest of middle earth with his army of (meltier-than-I-envisioned)-them-orcs.
i got it from the story of THE LORD OF THE RINGS.
i thought it should be correct
i got it . but it was the exact sentence i found in the Internet about the story of THE LORD OF THE RINGS. does anybody else have a new idea?
LOTR, like many fantasy/science fiction/childrens literature, contains words and phrases "invented" by the author, which the author has "borrowed" from other writers in the same genre, or just changed slightly to fit in with the style of the book. The British author Will Self, writing a completely different genre, often does the same thing. Such words and phrases will usually only be included in dictionaries if and when they become widely used by people.Originally Posted by matilda
Another example would be acronyms or semi acronyms which develop an identity as a word - e.g. yuppy.
