  • Q: Is Tolkien Index a wiki?
  • A: No. Tolkien Index utilizes the Mediawiki engine, but the project is not open for anyone to edit.


  • Q: Why aren't Quenya and Sindarin words glossed?
  • A: Tolkien Index only provides a page reference index for names, and there are other projects which list and provide glosses for the Elvish words included in, for example, issues of Parma Eldalamaberon.


  • Q: Why do you have some random index entries for names in volumes of The History of Middle-earth?
  • A: In some cases, where a name is very rare or obsolete, references to The History of Middle-earth are also given. Note, however, that Tolkien Index does not intend to provide a complete index for The History of Middle-earth (which instead can be found the excellent volume from HarperCollins: The History of Middle-earth Index).
