Dwarves? Really, so that’s how it’s going to be. What’s next? Are your favourite dwarves going to cash some colourful cheques in your neighbourhood? Get your bastardized language off my website you dirty Canadians.

On a related note, I think it's funny that I made a grammatical error right in the middle of my "I'm not an ignorant word-twister" sentence. (I meant to say "quite insulting" or "particularly insulting," but not both). Good gosh golly gee!
@Absinthe: Yep. After Tolkien's publishers "corrected" his writing by changing Elven and Dwarven to Elfin and Dwarfin, Tolkien corrected those dirty mothers right back, saying that "Elfin and dwarfin are pussy words; it's ESSENTIAL that we get them V's all up in there." Note the semicolon in his statement--Tolkien was a big fan of the semicolon. Thank Iluvatar those nasty publishin' fools listened to him.
As for you folks commenting on the bastardising of the English language: sure, we Americans have created some downright filthy fatherless children. But damn it, don't be a fool by resisting the evolution of language itself! Bastards are people too. And I can name several verbal bastards that comprise some of the greatest and most interesting words ever spoken or written down. Besides, the implication that all Americans are ignorant word-twisters is quite particularly insulting ... So piss off, posh supremacist naysayers!
That was aimed at no one in particular. Ah, it always feels good to get out a textual rant that absolutely no one is going to see.
Actually, I think that the Vs in 'dwarves' and 'elves' were popularized - if not invented - by Tolkien.
I agree with our ally Mexvi, who has described perfectly the evolution of the english language and our wonderful world of words and enjoyment!
Such colour in his words as he reveals his arduous work with letters! Excellently done indeed.
Plus, "Dwarfs" sounds weird. "Dwarves" rolls better. Dwarfs sounds derpy. Like dorf.
"Lookit dat, itsa dorf warror commin ter merderp us!"
Admin, I do believe you have discovered the wonderful language known as English. Say it with me slowly. E-N-G-L-I-S-H. You know, that language which American people have been bastardising (with an S as well) before Canadians had a say in it.
In the defence of my sulphuricly armoured honour, I fulfil the grey humour!
