Phrases

A "yellow-fanged" Mordor Orc cursing the Uruk Uglúk

One of the few examples of the horrid Black Speech.

In The Peoples of Middle-earth, Christopher Tolkien gives the translation: "Uglúk to the cesspool, sha! the dungfilth; the great Saruman-fool, skai!". However, in a note published in the journal Vinyar Tengwar, it is translated: "Uglúk to the dung-pit with stinking Saruman-filth, pig-guts, gah!" We have chosen to retain the original translation offered by Christopher Tolkien.
