Reconstructed Quenya

If you found an asterisk and it led you here, then the word following it is reconstructed. Reconstructed words aren’t found in Tolkien’s work, but a made by guessing how Tolkien would have made the word. Luckily for us, Tolkien left a lot of material behind to reconstruct from. Of course, this means that using reconstructed words is a little risky, because not everyone will know the word or agree with the way it was made. This is a list of the reconstructed words that I use. Not included in this list is words normalized from Qenya, pronouns, or numbers. Qenya is one of Tolkien’s earlier versions of Quenya and it’s so close to Quenya that places like Ardalambion provide the normalized words, so I didn’t see the point in relisting them here. For Numbers and Pronouns, I go by the systems reconstructed by Helge Fauskanger(links to an RTF) and Thorsten Renk.
