About me

It all started in 1998 when my best friend Alex lent me a book called ‘The Silmarillion’. It all started there. 5 years later, I began learning how to use Tengwar. I always loved languages and no wonder Tolkien writings hit me straight in the forehead. And it hit me hard!

Since 2003, I’ve been studying Quenya deeply. During college (Linguistics) I started taking notes about my classes in Tengwar and this definitely boosted my writing skills and knowledge. I have already used it very much (even though it’s an artificial language and some people tend to mock saying it’s not a ‘real’ language). Anyway…I have already translated songs, helped my friends with Quenya names, etymology, Tengwar writing and this is just a new-found way I may use from now on to spread my passion.

So, I hope you enjoy all the knowledge shared here.

    Alassë nin anta cenita i sís tecil, quén cenë sa túra meldo nal i Eldaiva lambëo, estelinya ná etta i voro caruvalyes ! 🙂

    I am an Italian linguist and researcher, have long since been following this blog even though due to lack of time I never had the chance to read much.
    Given that I have been planning to make Quenya a functional language in the context of real speaking and reading for many years, what you write here is quite appealing !
    Did you ever consider the idea of creating a “Quenya-only” chat or a specific thread in which those who follow your course can practice and communicate only through Quenya ?

    A couple of questions:
    – How would you convey the future perfect tense in Quenya ?
    – Since “lerta” means “be free to do” don’t you think the sentence “yassë lin ecë parë i lambë Eldaiva” would be more appropriate than “yassë lertal parë i lambë Eldaiva” (I’m so challenging ! I know, I just want to know your line of reasoning… 🙂 )

    • I’m glad you enjoyed the site and are so enthusiastic about Quenya like I am. Very good to have you aboard!

      I never considered a thread such the one you mentioned though it’d be an interesting idea indeed for practice purposes.

      I have never conveyed any sentence in Future Perfect Tense. Your question is really interesting and made me think. Professor Tolkien never left any material (the ones we got to know so far) about this tense. I wonder if there’s even a possible way to express it in Quenya or if the elves would actually convey ideas using this tense. I don’t know.

      By using “lerta”, I meant people were free here without any obstacles to learn Quenya. That’s why I wanted to employ this specific verb.
