TCG Letter #1360


From
P.H. Newby
To
J.R.R. Tolkien
Date
20 April 1954
Type
Unknown
Transcript
Unknown
Newby writes to Tolkien asking if an examination of the eighteenth-century Grammarians would make a suitable subject for a talk on the BBC's Third Programme. This stems from his memory of Tolkien's criticism of "Grammarian's English" and is interested in how far Tolkien would defend this position.

Tolkien will reply on 3 MayCarpenter #144a: Letter from J.R.R. Tolkien to P.H. Newby • 3 May 1954 (#1441)[1] saying that it would make a suitable "broadcast-talk".
