Swadesh list! It’s no secret how to! But what is a Swadesh list? It’s a list developed by Morris Swadesh containing some basic vocabulary of several languages. Basically, it’s a banquet for the curious mind!
My buddy from Mexico (full of great people by the way), Motanz created this particular Swadesh list shared here and he asked me if I could help with the Quenya column! OF COURSE, my horse, I said! Whatever it takes to help people learning Quenya, I’ll do it with pleasure!
So, if you are interested in: Español, Català, Português, Talossan, Română, Français, Esperanto, Nederlands, Deutsch, Dansk, Svenska, Íslenska, Русский язык, Čeština, Polski, Gaeilge, Euskara, Magyar, Türkçe, 한국어, Nāhuatlahtōlli, tlhIngan Hol, English….and….QUENYA; well dig in! The list was made for you!
