I agree. His books are a delight for a language dork. Every time I reread something of his, I always find something new that I hadn't caught in previous readings. Finding works of word-nerdness like Tolkien's are magical moments--rare treasures.

I have serious issues with some modern fantasy stuff that seems written by decent enough imaginations but clearly shows a lack for a true love and curiosity for language. Not to mention the hypersexuality of that crap--but that's a different cigarette butt for another drought-stricken forest floor.
