Quenya Classroom




Teacher: [ilanyus]


Quenya. One of Tolkien's many invented languages. The language of the High Elves. Not a complete language so not as much to learn. But still beautiful.

Much of this information has already been documented. I will try to make it educational but not over anyone's head.

It is hard to teach Quenya without mentioning Sindarin. In names the two languages were sometimes mixed. So if something has a Sindarin part I will make mention of it.

I decided it would take a long time on my part and probably be repetive to make a list of all the nouns. So I will give links to several wordlists you can visit.

http://www.uib.no/People/hnohf/qlist.htm
Ardalambion
http://www.xs4all.nl/~xelag/quenya.html
Lists separated by noun, verb etc.

Add any you know. As with many things online it's information could be incorrect so the more you read the more you can put together.

2004-05-13 [Ninja Squirrel]: I want to learn Quenya for the local Reniassance Festival so I can be an elf. What are the best ways to go about teaching one self with this sight as a guide?

2004-05-14 [Amerity]: go to the google search engine, and type 'grey company elvish dictonary'. It will come up with one you can download and a phrase book that has like every single phrase or how to create it and spells and weapons and ranks and such. thats were I get all of mine.

2004-05-28 [Amerity]: any time.

2004-06-03 [Ninja Squirrel]: What is the english equivalent to the Quenyan DH sound?

2004-06-04 [Amerity]: hmm....i think, not sure, but i think it is da-hien. Like I said i think thats it, but not posititve.

2004-06-04 [Ninja Squirrel]: i wasn't sure. I got confused while watching LOTR one day. One line the Legolas says is "Natha daged dhaer" and when it is pronounced in the movie, "dhaer" sounds like "thaer". it's in Sindarian, but I figured the pronunciation would be related. But thanx. I'll keep checking aroung to find it.

2004-06-06 [Amerity]: your welcome ^___^

2004-06-08 [Morgan17]: i heard that wood elves speek sindarin and high elves speek quenya...is that true?

2004-06-08 [Amerity]: ummmm.....i think...hmmm...another daunting question to think about...

2004-06-08 [Angel Dreamer]: can i answer?

2004-06-08 [Amerity]: go ahead..i dont know mcuh bout woodelves nohow

2004-06-08 [Angel Dreamer]: The language of the Grey-elves of Beleriand and most commonly used of the Elf-tongues in Middle-earth. When the Noldor returned to Middle-earth at the beginning of the First Age, Thingol (crackhead) decreed that their tongue, Quenya, was not to be spoken in his realms. So the language of his people, Sindarin, came to dominate. Quenya, though, was still used as a language of ceremony and poetry.

2004-06-08 [Angel Dreamer]: Sindarin shared common roots with Quenya, and the two languages had many similar words. Sindarin was said to be more changeful than the older tongue, however, and there were a number of regional 'dialects' of the tongue. The Sindarin spoken in Doriath was said to be the highest and most noble form of the language.

2004-06-08 [Angel Dreamer]: not that i know anything about woodelves, but http://www.glyphweb.com/arda/default.htm rocks. that's the sindarian entry on that site
