Alas, I find it still indistinct at the crucial moments where the word yéni occurs. I hear something approaching "in-yar", but cannot be at all sure. If someone can help I would love to know the correct pronunciation.
It is interesting, too, to reflect on just where Frodo gained his skill, since presumably Bilbo was his principal source. Gandalf seems to have spent all too little time with him, and that not devoted to language lessons. Is anything known of how Frodo came to display these (as well as so many other superlative) qualities?
