      **you might do better by sending this to the elfling list. This list
      (Quenya) is for speaking *in* Quenya.

      **Um, words that begin with g and nd don't normally occur in Quenya. The
      word for lady in Quenya is just heeri. (the double e marks an e with an
      accent, this convention is used on email lists because many people will see
      your diacrits as a jumble).


      >Gilthoniel! A Elbereth!

      **these names are attested as Tintalle Varda in Quenya. I think I'll just
      stop. I don't know where you got anpoy.
