The Plotz Declension

The Plotz Declension is the title given to a set of transcriptions of a manuscript page by J.R.R. Tolkien that lists the declensions of the nouns lasse and cirya together with notes by Tolkien as supplied by him to Dick Plotz in a letter from 1966-67.

'The Plotz Declension' was first published in Tolkien Language Notes Issue 2 (1974), and was later reprinted in Beyond Bree March 1989, Vinyar Tengwar 6 (1989), Vinyar Tengwar 11 (1990), Basic Quenya (1992), and in Proceedings of the J.R.R. Tolkien Centenary Conference (1995).
