Welcome! Wilkommen! Bienvenu!  

Elves have their own languages, so have Dwarves. Men and Hobbits usually speak Westron.  

But there are many ways to speak Westron! This guide gives the translation of a number of topographical names to help you find your way in the Shire. Or, to give directions to newcomers and visiting friends.
