Old Wômarin Dictionary, detailing the language of the Farthest East in Middle Earth

This dictionary was developed from the words shared at http://merp.wikia.com/wiki/Old_Wômarin, but builds upon those.  Old Wômarin was descended from Dragon Speech (D.S.) and bears a great resemblance to that language, so the Wômaw were essentially speaking Auld Wyrmish. I created this for my character, Tanuukkodol, an Easterling who followed the wizard Pallando. Tanuukkodol was of the Wômaw people (http://merp.wikia.com/wiki/W%C3%B4maw) who had fled west to the plains along with Pallando. Alatar, the other Blue Wizard, had turned to evil and remained in the East. Here is the Excel file for it (Easterling Womarin Dictionary3b) as well. If you actually make use of this, please let me know in the comments, as I can’t imagine anyone ever will!
