Allez les bleus!!!!
Today is THE French holiday, the storming of the Bastille and tomorrow possibly France will be for the second time Fifa World Cup Champions (I’m counting on that) so….
I present to you the awaited map of France (Léranor) in Quenya!
That’s above is the original map with all regions since the 2016 reform. Below you got the Quenya version written in our Roman alphabet and Tengwar alphabet as well.
Even though some names indicate “something of France” like Île-de-France and Hauts-de-France a non-genitive form was kept here just for phonetic reasons like French tends to. Also, the hyphenation of some regions names after the reform was not maintained in Quenya purely for aesthetic reasons. By the way…Corse is NOT positioned correctly on this map, it’s way farther than represented (I should point that out if you’re somewhat annoyed by that as I am).
All names are composed according to their etymologies except for few ones like Bretagne and Corse which follows a phonetic semblance according to Quenya phonotactics rules.
Voilà! I hope you like the maps and please feel free to comment anything about the names and their composition here.
Allons enfants de la Patrie, Le jour de gloire est arrivé!
