Re: Help with wedding band inscriptions
- Thanks for verifying my transcription.
I found the apostrophe a little strange cos I haven't seen quenya
with an apostrophe before. I supposed the author of the webpage i
visited found it impossible to display the accent so he resorted to
using the apostrophe.
One big challenge to mastering elvish is that there are so many
different ways to translate a single word. More over, there is no
right or wrong way.
Is there a good quenya pronuciation site that you can recommend?
I'm glad you replied. Thanks a lot for your help.I'm going to do the
engraving today. I will upload the pic of the ring onto the photos
section when it's done.
