"Heights" isn't really being used as a common noun in "Wuthering Heights"; it's part of the name of a place. ("heights" is a common noun, but so is "twist"; the point is that it's not in this context.) The Tolkien title should end "rings", not "ring". And "Breaking", in the Meyer title, is really an adjective. (I assume. I haven't read the book, so I'm assuming that it's an adjective describing the dawn; perhaps in the book, there's someone named Dawn, and the story involves breaking her. But I'd doubt it.)

@Tahnan: At least in the case of the Tolkien clue, he's referring to a specific part of the trilogy, so it should end as "Ring" and not "Rings"
May 8th, 2012 at 14:41 GMT
Thanks Tahnan, I wish I could just send you my quizzes to correct before releasing them. Apparently I get so excited by some answers that I overlook whether they are correct or not (yeah, Dawn is broken into so many pieces by the end of that book). As for The Lord of the Rings, I'm just talking about the single book in the series, which is 'Ring.'
May 8th, 2012 at 19:50 GMT
The Lord of the Rings is not a series OR a trilogy; it is one long story broken into six parts by Tolkien and three volumes by the publisher.
Nov 10th, 2012 at 03:09 GMT
yes, LOTR was written as Volume I of a two volume book, the second being the Silmirillion (sp?) final compilation of which was completed by his son after Tolkien's death. His publisher refused to publish it as a single volume for economic reasons.

Yeah! Just where
literature be without Grammar? Speaking from my own experiences growing up, I can say unequivocally that I owe all of my literature to my dear old Grammar, who always read to me when I was a child...

So THAT'S how you spell "Mohicans"
Nov 10th, 2012 at 10:04 GMT
Nice mix. Kenney up there with Tolstoy, Steinbeck, Austen and Hemingway.
Nov 10th, 2012 at 10:50 GMT
Fess up time: who else typed "Rings" without thinking?
Nov 10th, 2012 at 15:27 GMT
This isn't "literature without grammar" so much as it is Mad Lits.
Nov 10th, 2012 at 19:27 GMT
"Being" in The Importance of Being Ernest is a noun, not a verb. "Being Ernest" is a gerund phrase that functions as the object of the preposition "of". Just FYI.
Nov 10th, 2012 at 21:47 GMT
good game and great range of titles so everyone had to think a bit
