I'm giving a lecture on Tolkien's languages

I've been asked to give a 50 minute lecture on the constructed
languages in _The Lord of the Rings_ for a Tolkien course currently
being taught here (Brigham Young University). I would be happy to
hear suggestions from this group; I have some ideas already, but I am
always glad to get more. I'll be happy to post a copy of my notes
after I'm done if there is interest (the lecture is scheduled for 15
Feb). The course is an upper division honors course; I don't think
anyone has had any linguistics other than the "Introduction to the
English Language" course which we teach.
