"Most important perhaps, after Gothic was the discovery in Exeter of a Finnish Grammar. It was like discovering a complete wine-cellar filled with bottles of an amazing wine of a kind and flavour never tasted before. It quite intoxicated me; and I gave up the attempt to invent an 'unrecorded' Germanic langauge, and my 'own language' - or series of invented language - became heavily Finnicized in phonetic pattern and structure." - J.R.R. Tolkien
