    Talking 187-meltier-than-I-envisioned

    Hello all

    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.

    Thank you

    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?

    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.

    Another example would be acronyms or semi acronyms which develop an identity as a word - e.g. yuppy.
