Middle-earth calendar[edit]

The external link on the Reckoning of Time appears to be to a lapsed URL. Osric 00:20, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

Merges[edit]

Yule (Middle-earth) has been merged here. I'm putting the AfD record here:

Lithe should also be merged. Carcharoth 14:28, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

run that by me again?[edit]

Jim Allan suggests that Tolkien used the French Republican Calendar as an inspiration since this one was based on earlier unrecorded Germanic month names.

Does "this one" mean 'the latter' (as in French)? How can it be asserted that the French names (or Tolkien's names for that matter) were based on unrecorded Germanic names?

What exactly did Allan write? —Tamfang (talk) 13:05, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Wiktionary link[edit]

In the section 'External links', we're invited to look up 'middle-earth calendar' in Wiktionary. However there is no such article. This does not surprise me, as 'middle-earth calendar' is not a word. And irrespective of whether it's a word or phrase, it's not one that I'm aware that has any currency in general English.203.6.146.5 (talk) 08:51, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
