Danh-danh-duh-duh-danh. Duh-duh-danh. Duh-duh-danh. Duh-danh-danh. Danh-danh-danh-danh. My precious. Come on. Thanks, Steve. He loves this book. Hey, everyone. I'm Alex. Thanks for clicking, and welcome to this lesson on "Nature Vocabulary with Lord of the Rings". Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien is one of the greatest, most important, most revered not just fantasy novels; but novels, period, in the English language. It is wonderful, beautiful, full of lush landscapes and scenery. And the reason I've decided to focus on nature vocabulary for you guys is: Even if you're not a Lord of the Rings fan, this video is still useful for you because I'm going to give you some vocab that is common, but also not so common, and all of it is in this book.
Now, if you like this book that I have in my hand, and you want to know: "Alex, where can I get one?" you can get either the physical copy or the e-book version at the Amazon link that is attached to this video. Or another option is, if you want to listen to the audiobook version of Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring... There're also two more books - The Two Towers and The Return of the King. If you want any one of those books, you can get the audiobook version by checking out the link to Audible that is also attached to this video. You can get the book for free by clicking at the link, and you will also sign up for a free 30-day trial.
So, if you like the book, if you like the audio quality, and... Which I think you will, because the narrator who, you know, does Lord of the Rings-Rob Inglis is his name-he's wonderful. I have the book on my own phone, I've listened to it. He does, like, the songs that are in the story, he does the poems, and he has this deep, baritone voice when he reads the book, which is just beautiful. It makes you feel like your grandfather is reading the book to you. So, the audiobook is totally excellent. Check it out if you want at the Audible link that is attached to this video. I think that's all I wanted to say before we got into things. So, I'm going to put this down far away from Steve, over here. Okay. I'm watching you.
And we're going to talk about some of the flora and the fauna of The Lord of the Rings series. And this vocabulary is found throughout the entire series. Okay? So, what I wanted to do, really, with this video and what I want to do for you guys is to make you feel comfortable in the world of Middle Earth, because there is a ton of travelling; there are a ton of natural, physical features that are described in the book. It's very beautiful, it's very poetic, and if you're... If you like nature, this is the book for you. If you like fantasy, and action, and magic, and adventure, this is definitely the book for you.
So, I thought I would start with some of the wetter parts of the geography in Middle Earth, which is the fictional fantasy land that Lord of the Rings takes place in. So, we'll start very simple, a word you might already know, and that is a "river". Now, a river is a large channel of water that flows into a sea. So, around Montreal, you have the Saint Lawrence River. The Nile is a river. The Amazon is a river. So, these are long channels of water that flow into the sea, and there's actually some debate over whether the Nile or the Amazon is the longest river in the world, depending on how you choose to measure them.
