Thread: hello to everyone
There is a site where you can download a Quenya course, and learn to write and speak Quenya! It's quite good, I followed it for a while, but sadly I have now forgotten just about everything I learned. Ardalambion (click here)
But that doesn't mean one cannot indulge in Neo-Elvish, indeed very many people do. Carl Hostetter explains it well at...
Elvish as She Is Spoke
The rest of E. L. F. is recommended too of course.
Share and enjoy!
Elessar Lossëhelin - thanks. ^_^
Grondmaster - ^_^ thanks, not many compliment me on my chosen name. LOL
Mellon - not much to know about me really. im just a simple person. im 20 years old and im from somewhere in south east asia. people say that for a 20 year old i still act like im 16. (is that a good thing or a bad thing? LOL) i used to skateboard, though i stopped last year ever since i had surgery. so since then i focused on magic (or should i say the art of illussion) ^_^. i always loved how magic mixes sleight of hand and psychology and you i get to manipulate the objects and how people see them. =p you can find out more of me on www.zephyrcyrus60.multiply.com if your interested though i have not updated this in a few months.
thanks to you all. everyone seems friendly here. i have just one quick question. my real name is spanish which means free man, and its root would be the name francis. i saw somewhere that the translation fot this into an elven name would be mirinor/mirinoron? would any of you know if this is correct?
which is used more, quenya or sindarin?
If you mean used more by the Eldar of Frodo's day, then Sindarin. There were folk who knew Quenya of course but the living language was Sindarin. Quenya was used for high matters of lore and song, for example, but even the Exiles who brought High-elven to Middle-earth eventually spoke Grey-elven in daily use (well the actual history gets complicated in detail, but that's the very basic, quick version).
Noted Quenya name-maker Ales Bican suggests...
FRANCIS (m.) - the name seems to be related to 'French', 'France', I was puzzled with it, however I was suggested that it might mean 'free one'; mirima or léra "free", so Mirimon or Léron, although it may be not correct, because the name is connected with a characteristic spear the Franks used
FRANCES, FRANCHESCA (f.) - feminine form of FRANCIS (q.v.), so Mirime or Lére
