Ná, Quenya ná anwa mára(useful) lá Sindarin, er melmen Sindarin.
Isístien Sindarin otso astar(Study instead of know?). Er, ëar(there
are)pitya nóti quetto(a small number of words) Quettaparmassë
Sindarino. Sí, istan (here I mean "I study instead of I know) Quenya.
Ecéndien "I Tië Quenyanna" Helge Fauskangero.Ùmintyan(Vinya Quenya
quetta "mintya-" to remember thus úmintyan "I did not remember")i
I quetta "Ni": Ósanwenyar nár sa "Ni" ná I am- "I Tië Quenyanna"
quentes, ar Sindarinessë "Im" ná "Ni"; ar "Im" ná "I am". Yondo,
ósanwenya né sa "nan" ná atya quetta "but".
Please correct me if I made any mistakes(and I know I did).
