Richard is a friend and Sindarin student of mine, and he’s got a pretty amazing voice. Here he is singing Galadriel’s Lament, with the music arranged by Donald Swann: You can see how to pronounce this poem on it’s page in the Recorded Scripts section, and maybe make your own recording of it! In other […]
Hello everyone! It has been a long, long, long, year. I graduated from college at long last, got a job, quit that job, and somehow, amidst all of that, I finished modernizing the website. My good friend Phil Smith has moved on to follow his own writing projects (should be something amazing, I’m sure! I’ll […]
A bigger than usual update for today. I posted two new Sindarin poems: I Chiril os Salod and Ollas Nin o hAuth. I cleaned up the Word Lists page, and got rid of the old wordlists (Except the Adûnaic Dictionary, that has aged much more gracefully). They’re outdated, we have no one interested in updating […]
I’m trying to make my pronunciation guides easier for people who aren’t familiar with IPA. Please check them out here (Quenya) and here (Sindarin). Let me know what you think! Thanks!
I posted a link to my phrasebook database project on Elfling, and got some useful critiques. I uploaded the edited version last Friday (Sep. 21st) which now holds a whopping 7259 phrases in it.
You can find it here: The Phrasebook Database In it is included the thousands of new Quenya phrases that I’ve been working on translating the past few months. The main reason that I decided to do this at last is the dialects. You now have the ability to select which dialect you need. Long ago, […]
It’s finally time to beta-test the new phrasebook database! Phrasebook Database Interface Please let me know any problems or errors that you find, and any suggestions you have for making it easier to use are welcome. One little note: the “all of them” option for the phrasebook sections won’t be working until tomorrow, so don’t […]
There’s a new wordlist! This one is for Reconstructed Quenya. I made it while working on the Quenya phrasebook. Some news on the Phrasebook Database project: it is in the final stages of completion! I’m in the process of building a form that can interact with the database, and that will hopefully be easy to […]
A luhta tálunyassë, pan apárien parmanen Amanya eldalambé! Parma Ñoldorinwai quentelion ya Micael nin tencë ná yerna ar mauya nin sá at-etécië. Sinen, parnen. Ma mára len? Ahem… Well that was fun. Basically: I’m rewriting the outdated Quenya phrasebook that Michael wrote for me ages ago. In order to do it, I learned Quenya. As […]
One thing that has been delaying my making of a complete Exilic namelist is that I didn’t have Sindarin verbs made into names yet. I just finished translating a mountain of Sindarin verbs into hundreds of new Sindarin names! The Exilic names should go much quicker now! I’m also cleaning out the Qenya names that […]
