      Very interesting. Would love to see a scan of the Sunday Times if it's of interest (typographic, otherwise). Let us know what you find out!

      Thanks

      Greetings All 

      Today's Sunday Times here in the UK has a special Hobbit film magazine coverage.  The online version includes several videos.  One by one of The Hobbit film language coaches, Rosin Carry, includes an intro talk on Quenya and Sindarin and mentions that in The Hobbit films the Wizards and Galadriel will speak some Quenya. 

      Then she gives three examples of Sindarin:  

      How are you? (Happy am I beyond that which you know) - Elin eb I istodh na Dirad Lin 

      Let's go - Boe i'watham (lit It is necessary we leave)

      Should we have a glass of wine - Nauthon I miruvor ammen man pedidh? 

      Interesting.  Good to know the last expression - must be used by the Wood Elves.  

      Need to check canonical sources to see how these stack up against Tolkien's work.  Based on my own research into the early Tolkien miruvor jumped out at me as this word goes back to 1915 and Tolkien's early work on Gothic (see intro to Parma Eldalamberon 12). 

      Getting the source books out! 

      Thanks Andy

      I was reminded that items nominated in 2011
      that did not win an award are also eligible for
      renomination this year. So...please don't hesitate
      to remind me if you had a book out last year that
      was nominated but did not win! Again, just trying
      to be thorough....

I'd like to look over any books I might not have gotten to yet with an eye toward nominations. Thanks!
