>Tolkien wrote fantasy, not science fiction. He is perhaps the only person I
know of to have written linguistic fiction, and got away with it.


I respectfully disagree--Suzette Haden Elgin wrote Native Tongue and other
stories about feminism and languages, and then the Ozark trilogy written in
High Appalachian. (she had a PhD in linguistics. Like the Patrician of
Ankh-Morpork, she majored in languages).
