25"Quenya of _Namaarie_"
- May 31 10:48 AMAiya!
In a message on Elfling Pavel has argued that there could be no
general "Namaarie-style Quenya", for that particular phase of Quenya
begins and ends with "Namaarie" and in any other sole piece of
Quenya text there is already a somehow different Quenya.
Not to say that I disagree with such view, but I believe it is a
bold (not necessary wrong) extension of what Carl and others say
about Tolkien's languages. I myself adhere to this opinion (as I
believe most of the present colleagues do) and I think it would be
quite useful if Carl or Bill or any of the venerable ELF members
give a small talk on that subject. To what extent one could regard
the gradual perfection of Quenya (or any of Tolkien's languages) as
producing clearly distinguishable stages of Quenya? I would be glad
to have this view articulated in a comprehensive essay. That would
serve as a kind of Creed for this wonderful list. Hmm, *_Sande
