Ouse, I seem to remember from school, is a river in the North of England, but given all the flooding it could be anywhere now!

Of them "S" elves, who bore the Silmarils from Angmar in the Middle Years, the Lords of Westron tell us naught; but in addition to equivocal Hungarians called Esterhase, John Le Carré also refers to espionage listeners as "elves" - an in-house moniker.
