[livejournal.com profile] envinyatar99 did a little exploring and kindly pointed out that Fellowship and Two Towers also have been translated into text messaging format.

So we have Pippin in Moria:

P1P&: i in ur m0r14 dropin ur stonz

And to Treebeard in Fangorn:

P1P&: we're in ur forest bein ur frends


As well as Wormtongue in Rohan and Frodo in the Emyn Muil:

Wrmtng: im in ur hall controlin ur king

phr0d0: im in ur mountains climin ur rox


It cracks me up that Treebeard's dialogue cannot be translated into chatspeak!

My goodness, I think I need aspirin now.
Still, it's hopelessly funny, lol

Just the concept of boiling down Lord of the Rings into dialogue cracks me up. And some of the words just look funny!

I wonder if Tolkien would be appalled by or intrigued by this language!
