788New _Tengwestië_ article: "The Noldorin Plurals in the _Etymologies_" by Bertrand Bellet
- Mar 18, 2005Patrick Wynne and I are pleased to announce the publication of a new
article in _Tengwestië_, the online journal of the Elvish Linguistic
"The Noldorin Plurals in the _Etymologies_"
by Bertrand Bellet
This article list all plural forms of Noldorin nouns or adjectives
found in the _Etymologies_, sorted according to their mode of
formation: plurals by vowel affection, imparisyllabic plurals, class
plurals, and the remaining rare kinds. The inventories are presented as
tables or lists, with a discussion of the observed plural patterns and
their possible origins.
(We would like to extend our thanks to Helios De Rosario Martinez for
formatting the article for publication on _Tengwestië_.)

ho bios brachys, he de techne makre.
Ars longa, vita brevis.
The lyf so short, the craft so long to lerne.
"I wish life was not so short," he thought. "Languages take such
a time, and so do all the things one wants to know about."
