Who all can speak Quenya?

Post#1 » Fri Aug 06, 2004 7:42 am

I'm a newbie at it and downloaded the lessons at ardalambion.com, so I hope that helps because a lot of people I ask say its the best place to learn. Does anyone know if there is a book on how to speak Quenya?

I have a book its for all the languages Tolkien wrote but mostly Sindarin and Quenya. The book is called: The Language of Tokien's Middle-earth by Ruth S. Noel. I really like it , it has and English to Elvish dictionary and how to write Elvish.

Hope that helps! :tigger:

You might be able to get it at your local bookstore or online.

I would definitely not recommend Ruth S. Noel's book; it's very outdated and contains many errors and incorrect theories.

Ardalambion is definitely the best reference you will find.

There was one problem with the Quenya course. At the start, there were lots of people attending the lessons. However, as time went by, interest dwindled, until it had to be suspended. Then the course was restarted from the beginning, kindled by the enthusiasm of several new members of PT. Exactly the same thing happened again. And again, and again. In the end the course had to be terminated indefinitely. If anyone really feels that we should give it one more go, it may well be starting again in a couple of weeks' time. We'll see.

I have been learning Quenya for the past two weeks, and I have to say - it's easier than I thought it would be. The sentence structure is very simple, the only real problem is all the vocab, but i guess that just takes time.
