Sera of the Rose: Does anyone know if "Suil mellonegen" means hi friend? Got phrase from YouTube but can't confirm with dictionary. Dec 18, 2019 3:06:49 GMT
Xandarien: It literally means 'Greetings my friend', Suil = Greetings, Mellon = Friend Dec 19, 2019 10:56:36 GMT
Vyc: And "egen" is the bit for "my," using informal language. <3 Dec 26, 2019 1:31:13 GMT
trailwalker: How would pharmacist be translated into Sindarin? Jan 19, 2020 12:58:43 GMT
Xandarien: Nestor means 'healer', that's as close as you'll get from attested Sindarin Jan 20, 2020 21:30:22 GMT
trailwalker: Thanks for replying. My own thoughts exactly. Healing draught maker? That definitely would be untested! Jan 21, 2020 10:22:35 GMT
trailwalker: Sorry, that should read unattested. Jan 21, 2020 10:23:13 GMT
luna: Would 'blue moon' be translated as 'ithil elu'? Feb 3, 2020 13:56:16 GMT
Xandarien: Yes, or Ithil luin, assuming you want the full moon :) Feb 6, 2020 19:49:51 GMT
luna: Ah thank you! I wanted to know both :) Feb 7, 2020 11:01:22 GMT
luna: Actually, elu and luin aren't the color pale blue and blue? If that's the case then ithil means crescent and full moon? Feb 7, 2020 13:48:50 GMT
Xandarien: Cúron is a crescent moon, so Cúron elu = Pale blue crescent moon, Cúron luin = Blue crescent moon Feb 7, 2020 21:30:24 GMT *
luna: Thank you for explaining!! Feb 10, 2020 11:57:43 GMT
Elenmir: How would I go about learning to write Tengwar and then, start writing sindarin into Tengwar? Feb 12, 2020 21:44:40 GMT
Elenmir: Also, Tengwar is the writing system that is supposed to be used for true Sindarin, correct? Feb 12, 2020 21:45:49 GMT
Xandarien: Tengwar isn't my area of expertise. I suggest maybe store.realelvish.net/product/write-english-with-tengwar-a-workbook-for-english-general-use/ or there's a book called "The Elvish Writing Systems of J.R.R Tolkien" Feb 13, 2020 9:28:33 GMT
Xandarien: You can use Tengwar for any language (much in the same way you could write English words in Arabic script or German words in Cyrillic) but there are particular 'modes' for Quenya/Sindarin Feb 13, 2020 9:29:13 GMT *
Elenmir: Len hannon! Feb 13, 2020 22:31:11 GMT
Elenmir: This site is great! At first Sindarin seemed overwhelming, but these lessons are helping me learn it easily! Feb 13, 2020 22:33:05 GMT
Xandarien: Added a new Weapon Naming section to Lesson 38 Feb 17, 2020 11:30:39 GMT
