My friends got a book which I think is called The Languages of Middle-earth. I'm not sure, tho. You can get it at Barnes & Noble.

The Languages of Tolkien's Middle-earth by Roth S. Noel is available but has been panned in every review I have read. They say it is out of date and has errors of omission and comission. :(

Does anyone have this book or something nice to say about it?

I`ve only heard bad things about it...apparently there`s a lot of mistakes in the book and you`ll loose your money if you buy it...kinda sad, I really want that book!!

I don`t even know if I can get it Norwegian..we`ve got to few translaters here...no one that`s willing to take the job :(

you can learn Sindarin using the appendix in LotR, plus just studying the words in the all the books and cross refrencing them with Welsh language books. There is a slight mixing of the Norse languages in there but if you speak English you can usually get by as our language developed mainly from these languages.
Sod off I'm busy!

I don't realy know any books about Quenya or any of the other languages at all, but I think they do exist, I did find however, a very good website. Atleast in my opinion. I think it goes something like this: http://www.ardalmbion.com

LadyBlueAutomnSky,
Your link does not work. I am assuming you are referring to this link, which can be found on the NAV bar on the left, under [u] General[/u]/ [u] Web Links[/u] as Grondy has already mentioned.

If you haven't dropped into our Quenya Guild yet, please try it. We also meet in the chatroom #Bilbos-Study on Monday afternoon at 4pm ET, if you would like to join us for some instruction in Quenya.
