Son has to find word jest in a sentence structure
Answers 2Add Yours
I'm pretty sure "jest" in the Hobbit means the same thing as jest today. It is a joke or humorous turn. Did he need to find the actual sentence in the book?
"Weariness fell from him soon in that house, and he had many a merry jest and dance, early and late, with elves of the valley."
This is the sentence from the Hobbit.
