some variant of the Mode fo Beleriand instead. There's
still the problem of language difference, of course,
but it might be worth a try to design som kind of
vanilla-flavoured Mode of Beleriand. Have a look at
mu guide for Swedish (Beleriand), it might be a good
start. Then remove stuff like diphthongs etc. See:
(temp URL until we get forodrim.org back).
But I must say that I'm doubtful to the whole idea.
It could very easily lead to widespread and
hard-to-exterminate misunderstandings. We should
be careful to avoid that. The "inzert c00L phraze"
tsunami will hopefully be over in a few years when
the movie is considered hopelessly uncool.
