I have just recently become a Tolkien fan. my family is heavily irish, and my grandmother speaks Gaelic. i would just like to comment that tolkien's elf language is very similar to gaelic. i was wondering if anyone knew if that is what he used to insoire the elf language?

If you meant inspire, Sindarin is mainly derived from Welsh (so it will be very similar to Gaelic) and the main inspiration for Quenya is Finnish. Welcome to PT btw. :)

Gaelic is an english word to describe 3 different languages.

Welsh = Very different from Gaelige (Irish Gaelic) and Scottish Gaelic.

And here was I thinking it was ALL the same. I've got this programme on my computer that teaches Scottish Gaelic. Fun. But I'm learning Latin at the moment, so it's on hold. So is Quenya.

Welcome to PT Rivergone!

Try this site for learning Quenya: Ardalambion

I've found it to be quite helpful.

Grondy merely turned the above into a link. :happyelf:
