Quenya Masters

Quenya101 is hiring!

It has come to my attention that this site has been achieving its goal pretty much nicely since it started.

Goal: Spread Quenya knowledge, join together people who love the language and help everyone willing, to learn Quenya grammar in order to use it correctly. Ooooo …and have fun in the process. 😀

But up to this day, there is only me here, Erunno Alcarinollo, the Headmaster. You only read me. My words, my voice. Things will change a little bit. I announce that Quenya101 Language Institute is from now on, hiring new Quenya masters to enrich its wells of knowledge, to spread further beyond its boundaries. Let’s hear from different parts of the world, different people, different voices, with the same eagerness and genuine love of the language our Master Tolkien developed.

  5. Why I am afraid of the IELTS? Hmmm… I guess it is still too difficult for me, but I’ll try…

    You see, there are not many subscribers from Russia, and I believe they already know these poems. But if you want I can send you some. Also, we have few interesting things like a rock-opera called „Finrod-song”, which is known probably by every Tolkien fan in Russia… but still it isn’t very interesting when you don’t understand anything, is it?

    By the way, I was thinking of translating the map of Russia to Quenya (you remember, like it is already done with the map of Latvia) but I am not sure yet when I can finish it.

    Ok, so I’ll send you something you may like by the e-mail. Tell me: do you need an English translation of Russian poems? (I guess I won’t make it completely correct but well, at least it can be understandable)

    • Owww I do need a translation from Russian to English! For sure! I won’t be able to understand a thing!

      Very cool you got this Russia map project! Please keep it up! I would love to lay eyes on it and share with everyone else here! (+1 as contribution from you)

      I don’t know this Finrod opera and that’s certainly one thing I’d like to check closely. Pretty interesting!

      As far as I can see…you’re on the right path to become a Quenya Master (and also getting your IELTS). Go for it, girl!

  6. Of course I understand. But still… I’m going to pass the IELTS test in May (oh dear Eru, I’m afraid of it) and then study in the UK so I hope to boost my language skills soon. And if you have a vacancy by then… I’d certainly try to apply 🙂
    By the way, are you interested in some Quenya poems or songs? I guess they aren’t perfectly correct, but… I’m just asking because there are few of them commonly known (and made as well) by the Russian fandom. ..Actually there are LOTS of beautiful poems about Arda but I can’t share them because they are Russian… oh why… and how painful it is. =(

    • So, you’re good to go concerning English. Why are you afraid of it?

      Tell me: Why can’t you share them??? Please do! If they are in Russian, that’s even cooler!

      Quenya101 is open to all languages! We have already had posts here in Spanish & Portuguese. Several languages appear at Poem & Prose! It would be super cool to have Russian brought by you here!

      Also, it may start as a contribution for your account, in order to become a Quenya Master.

  7. Oh well… It would be really nice if I just knew English good enough, but I suppose I do not.

    • Unfortunately, due to a communication issue, English is very important! After all, it’s the lingua franca and without it, we wouldn’t be able to talk!

  8. I’m as close to being a master as Gollum to a Vala but parts of certain conditions sought apparently meet my qualifications to some extent. Loving Quenya is the only requirement I fully -and maybe even more that that!- meet; I have a certain amount of knowledge and skills, when summed up might weigh a teaspoon load; being a scholar is not required but I hope I may use being a Classics (Classical Greek & Latin) student with some knowledge of Farsi as joker…

    The contribution part is what I dread, because I’m one of the laziest and disorganised of all speaking peoples you can meet in Middle-earth and beyond. But I’m a devoted follower and a good learner I must say! Therefore, I’m ready and eager to become an “advanced learner” under the ultimate master Erunno. 🙂

    • What a honest picture!

      Contribute a bit more and you’ll earn your spot for sure! You are devoted and committed to the language and also got skills, that is clear! Your knowledge of languages as Turkish & others from the region, gives you an edge which most people here don’t have! Use it to your advantage! Keep it up! You can become a Quenya Master!

    I’m just curious about where one goes to learn the basics of Quenya? The phonology things presented here are very clear and thorough, but I have no idea about basics like the copula, cases, verbal morphology, syntax, even word order. Where does one go for an overall sketch of the language and an online dictionary? Do such resources exist?
