Thread: Elvish language
<<  
Sorry about that. It will be worth the wait, ceocan, so hang in.
To save you searching through past posts I have added three sites recommended by Rednell to this section. If you wish to learn Elvish, or in the case of one of the sites, other MiddleEarth languages too, that is the place to go.
If any of you find other good sites, you are able to submit them for review by the Council under the same section. As there must be thousands out there, however, please don't swamp us with too many unless you feel they are really good.
Ah well, what can you do except waiting for september
However, this link should be helpfull:

Sorry for mistake Rednell

Hi there Tigiel! Welcome to Pt and meet the rest of the loonies!
how can you make new Sindarin words like 'computer' or 'keyboard'
Tough one.. It's the same problem they have on Iceland, there all things must be given an new icelandic name so their language won't be "watered out" by foreign spelling and such. They actually speak Norse. I think it's really cool! I wish I could give examples of it, I've heard some but can't remember.
Check out our Quenya Guild threads in the Guilds section of the forum for more info on the language.
If any of you wants to have information about the languages of Tolkien here is a site for you.
I found it while I was looking for a good fan-fiction story on fanfiction.com.
here's the site:
Ardalambion nŠ vanya nomŽ. Istanen to, ar nŠn valin hirnelyes.
It is indeed a good site.

Note: In my post, replace hirinyes with hirnelyes.
This site is fabulous! I am a 'newbie' - almost 24 hours old! I have been going round this site like a lunatic - there's so much!
I've been reading through this... 'thread' - is it? I've been copying & pasting, like a mad woman, all those links for 'language lessons' ! I live in Ireland & only speak English... Unless you can count GCSE French!?! I did, in the past, take note of the elvish alphabet, when translating the map from The hobbit -the map with the entrance to the mountain .... But can anyone tell me what Elvish that was? (As there is more than one!) Also - How many are there ? So much to take in - My mind is going to burst.. But I love it!
More questions... Can anyone suggest to me a good place to start or which of them is the best to start with! I am so intrigued by the languages... The genius of Tolkien is just amazing!
These thread things are supposed to be short, aren't they!?! Apologies for the essay! Just wanted to say 'hello' & praise this part of the site - which I have found to be minuscule, in comparison with the entire site - Fantastic!
Hope you all have a good day, cheerio.
The individual posts make up a thread (or topic) optimally all on the same subject.
The length of a post is at the determination of the poster; however, I often request that for the long ones, their paragraphs be broken into sections of approximatly five lines so I can find my way back, if I'm distracted in the middle of reading them. I easily get lost in a solid screen of text and breaking a paragraph in half shouldn't be that hard to do. Besides, the writer ought to come up for air every so often.
If you make a mistake in a post, you can return and correct it using the 'Edit Post' button found in the lower right hand corner of each of your posts. If you do this soon after making your post you can avoid calling attention to your mistake. However, if you do it days later, you might leave a note saying what you corrected, in order to maintain continuity with the posts made subsequent to your original one.
We used to have an automatic "Edited by so and so date stamp" on old P-T, I find its omission is kinder.
I've just spotted what you pointed out - 'Edit' button - Fantastic. I'll remember that for the future as I'm sure to make more mistakes! I'll leave that one there though, as proof of the fact that I am only human - What's one mistake between Planet-Pals!
Thanks for the 'heads up'.
