Learn to Speak Elvish

Tolkien produced many varieties of Elvish throughout the Middle Earth series. To go into all the various dialects on Elvish, throughout the scope of time in Middle Earth, is far beyond the scope of this guide, as it would take hundreds of pages to properly fill. The two language variations with the most complete language and grammar are Quenya and Sindarin, High-elven and grey-elven respectively.

Tengwar (Elvish) alphabet

Tolkien created many languages throughout his life. He wrote in one of his letters that the tales of Middle-earth (The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, etc) grew from these languages, rather than the languages being created for use in the stories.
