Re: [elfscript] 1 more idiot to add to the bag
- Thank you so much for that! I figured I could study it...learning it fluently does seem like it wouldn't be so easy to do. But when I searched for information, I was bombarded with websites, etc..and had no idea where to start! So thank you so much for giving me some sort of direction! Rhois

some reason, people tend to want Quenya translations of their names, but
if you notice in LotR, the only Quenya names used, as far as I can
remember, are Sauron, Eärendil, Varda and the royal names of the Kings
of the Dúnedain. The huge majority of names in 'Elvish' are Sindarin.)
Anyway, the Sindarin word/name for 'Rose' is attested in the King's

languages or merely 'study' them. You can certainly 'learn about' them,
but you cannot learn to speak Quenya or Sindarin fluently; we don't know
enough about them to do so and probably never will. Probably the best
starting place is www.ardalambion. com ... Good luck!
Cuio mae, Danny.
