Outer information

Due to its close similarity to archaic Westron (which is represented by modern day or archaic English), Rohirric is mostly translated into modified real-world Old English (also known as Anglo-Saxon).However he does not use the standard wessex dialect but rather a modernized/modified version of old mercian (Which for example simplifies spellings: Elfwine instead of "Ælfwine", Saruman instead of "Searumonn", Galmod instead of "Gálmód" etc. Or modified anglo-saxon mixed with modern english: Shadowfax instead of "Sceadufæx",Firienwood instead of "Fyrgenwudu", "Wose" instead of "(Wudu-) Wasa" etc.).
