At 5:30 AM, I finally completed uploading the updates to the Neo-Sindarin phrasebooks, including their German translations! Alphin is our German translator, so feel free to send her some thank-yous for all of her hard work! Other than a sparkly new German translation, I’ve reorganized many of the phrasebooks to be more conversation-like, grouping questions […]

TLDR: Sindarin Class is on break until the website is fixed. If you’re a student in the current Sindarin class, you may have noticed some technical problems plaguing the textbook’s website. The menu has gone all wonky, certain pages are giving nothing but errors, and you can’t login. Well, it’s not a problem on your […]

Because of the work I’m doing on the Neo-Sindarin textbook, I ended up giving the calendar pages a much-needed overhaul. In the Calendars of Arda essay, I removed the words I made for the Sindarin version (the Sindar weren’t interested in dates as much as others were, and the Noldor and the Gondorians preferred Quenya […]

I, dreamingfifi, have graduated from college, with a degree in Linguistics! I’ve now got the letters “BA” after my name. This means some changes will happen around here. Because I don’t have mountains of homework anymore, I can spend more time on the website! The Sindarin lessons will now be offered all year, not just […]

We have two […]

Some of you may know this already, but last Saint Nicolas’ Day, my grandfather died. We were quite close. He was a brilliant anthropologist and quite gifted at learning languages. If you want to know more about him, do a search on Frank Bessac. I miss him terribly, to the point of distraction. Anyways, I’m […]

As some of you may know, my website was kicked offline last month because it apparently had run out of bandwidth. To set the record straight: No it hadn’t run out of bandwidth. There was a problem with the server’s ability to tally the usage of my website, making it think that 6 months of […]

Hello everyone! You can now help me make decisions about the website! Under the House of Guests there is the Pollbooth. Please Vote! I’ve added a section for people wanting websites with titles in Tolkien’s languages. Your Sindarin Textbook is a huge success so far! There are seven students on the Roster! “Chapter 6 – […]

Please forgive me for neglecting you for so long! I have a lot of updates to get through. I decided that the Sindarin subtitle was a silly idea. In its place, I put a pretty banner that I made in MSPaint. I learned some CSS coding! Now the navigation bar is easier to read and […]
