I'd just like to say that i was randomly surfing the web, reading
forums (fora? fori?) and i came across a post by a Netherlandser, in a
forum whose de-facto official language is English, where he used that
'put accents on stressed words in the sentence' rule that people here
seem to like so much.
But i don't think anyone there noticed. ;)
"Presumably, Sauron gave up carnal pleasures when he became an
all-seeing eye at the top of a tower, but it’s hard to say for certain.
Maybe he gets a kick out of the all-seeing bit."
