Tengwar (Elvish) alphabet

Tengwar (Elvish) alphabet
Origin J.R.R. 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. Tolkien also created a number of different alphabets to write his languages - Tengwar, or Feanorian letters, is the one which appears most frequently in his work. The way the vowels are indicated in Tengwar resembles Tibetan and other Brahmi-derived scripts. Notable features Written from left to right in horizontal lines. Used to write A number of different languages of Middle-Earth, such as: Quenya, Qenya or High-Elven, the most prominent language of the Amanya branch of the Elvish language family. Sindarin, the language of the Grey-elves or Sindar. Sylvan, Westron, etc Tengwar can also be used to write English, Welsh, Scottish Gaelic, Spanish, Swedish, Polish, Esperanto and a variety of other languages.

Write Your Name in Elvish in Ten Minutes Write Your Name in Elvish in Ten Minutes You want to write your name in Elvish, but every place you go seems to make it harder than it ought to be. Elvish writing looks beautiful and mysterious, but does it really have to be impossible to understand? Why doesn't somebody just spell out the alphabet so you can simply substitute the letters and get straight to the result? Here's the alphabet. That's it. Generally the vowels go above the consonants, but sometimes, in the case of Y and silent E, they go below. The straight line underneath is just one way to make one character do the work of two. The line above a consonant means that a nasal N or M precedes the consonant in question. Here's one last example with two different letter combinations. I am often asked how to handle double vowel situations. That's all you need to get started. Please be aware that there are many ways to write English words in Elvish. Good luck!

The Elvish Linguistic Fellowship Vertigo (DC Comics) Vertigo is an imprint of the American comic-book publisher DC Comics. It was originally created to do stories that could not meet the stringent guidelines of the Comics Code Authority and this allowed their comics to be more edgy, provocative and subversive than their main imprint of titles. This meant that their age-restricted titles were free to contain explicit contents of violence, substance abuse, sexuality, nudity, profanity, and other controversial subjects similar to that of an R-rated film. Although many of its releases are in the horror and fantasy genres, it also publishes works dealing with crime, social satire, speculative fiction, and biography. In early December 2012, Karen Berger announced that she would be leaving the company in March 2013, marking twenty years with Vertigo and 33 years with DC Comics, making her longest-running DC employee.[14]

Learn Elvish (a little bit of philosophy) So, you made up your mind to learn Elvish? I absolutely love the Elvish languages, so I can understand that perfectly, and I wish you plenty of joy! But there's a question which you might want to ask yourself early on - and maybe later as well - what do you mean by 'learning'? Do you wish to speak the language, write Elvish poetry and read Elvish stories, use it in roleplaying games and write Elvish letters to your friends? But that is not how Tolkien ever thought about the languages. Tolkien never viewed his creations as finished - he was always revising and altering things - even for published things (which he couldn't really alter) he re-invented the underlying explanation - a good example is Gil-Galad - in Letters:279 he states This variation g/k is not to be confused with the grammatical change or k, c > g in Grey-elven, seen in the initials of words in composition or after closely connected particles (like the article). Why am I telling all this to you?

Learn to Speak Elvish A History of Elvish Mr. 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. So without further ado, here are some good basic conversational Elvish, which satisfies the curiosity of most people and is more than enough to effectively learn to speak elvish at its most rudimentary form. English - Elvish ____________________________________________________________ Good (day/morning/afternoon) - Uel (re/amrun/andune) Greetings (everyone) - Vedui' (il'er) Farewell - Namarie You are a mighty warrior - Lle naa belegohtar You are beautiful - Lle naa vanima You disgust me - Amin feuya ten' lle Are you ready?

« Chez Tolkien, l’amour des mots précède l’intention mythologique » L’auteur de «Bilbo le Hobbit» était aussi un poète et un philologue médiéviste qui, en créant l’univers de la Terre du Milieu, a également construit des langues imaginaires très élaborées. Rencontre avec Charles Delattre, spécialisé en langues, littératures et mythologies gréco-romaines, qui a participé au «Dictionnaire Tolkien», paru chez CNRS Éditions. Passionné par les langues construites, pourquoi Tolkien qualifiait-il son amour des mots de « vice secret » ? Dessins de créatures fantastiques dans le Codex Nowell, manuscrit composé par un poète saxon anonyme entre le VIIIe et le XIe siècle. Comment peut-il inventer plusieurs dizaines de langues avec leur propre généalogie ? Non seulement Tolkien a inventé plusieurs langues, mais il a créé une cohérence entre elles. Mais elles ont surtout une cohérence interne identique à la cohérence des langues véritables. Ses langues proliféraient un peu comme une matière vivante ? P. En librairie :
