Once again, Jack Shaw got his own custom calendar for the month of Coirë and if you want yours, you can get it as well by becoming a Q101 Master or Lord here. There are several other rewards and bonuses too. Get access to them all by becoming a Q101 Patreon now! If you’re already one, check this new entry in the Q101 Elvish Calendar on the exclusive Patreon page here
Just writing this one to share the exclusive calendar released in the beginning of November, 2nd, 2017 for all Patreons and now made available for the public too:
Last month was Gandalf time, now it’s Galadriel! Also, Jack Shaw had it customized to his sunset time in Australia and if you want yours, as unique as it gets, become a Quenya101 Master here. It’s limited.
Patreon Jack Shaw wanted it, Patreon Jack Shaw got it! I present you the Hrívë month as a new page in our Q101 Elvish Calendar:
Oh…what’s up with the big Patreon logo blocking the view? Well, that’s a Patreon exclusive content. Please consider supporting Quenya101 Language Institute where you can get that and much more. Jack got it. He got an exclusive custom made elvish calendar digitally made to his city and sunset time. Pretty neat, huh? Get yours too at Quenya101 Patreon. But….Run! There are limited spots for that reward tier!
And the Elvish Cartographer (a.k.a. Quenya101) attacks again! After we completed the maps for North America why shifting the compass and head a little bit south? Birds migrate every year heading south and this year it seems to me, I’ll take this route too! South it is!
Australia map below was extremely easy to compose into Quenya. States got simple names, all in English so quick and painless, I present to you: Hyarmenórë!
The only name which took me a little research was Tasmania. It’s based on the name of the first one who discovered it and due to the sm cluster, Tasmania was adpated to Tammanya following the phonetic evolutionary rules of Quenya, i.e. SM > MM in medial clusters.
Hyarmenya Hyarmenórë seems TOO MUCH souths involved but, well that’s really what it means “South Australia”. It’s English/Latin redundant, so let it be in Quenya too!
I hope enjoy the land of Oz and don’t forget to check other countries as well here. If yours is not there, just ask it here and it’ll be a pleasure to compose it for you!
Aiya! Essenya Almárë ná ar nanyë vinya quén i tecë sís.
Hello, my name is Almáre and I’m a new writer here. 😀 I’ve not done any posts thus far, but I’ve got a couple in the works, including a translation of Kepler’s Laws of Planetary Motion and one of Nightwish’s Ghost Love Score.
I began studying Quenya only last December, though I had been meaning to for a number of years – I think I downloaded the Ardalambion course all the way back in 2006 but never got around to it! Oh that I had! Still, over the last three months the study of Quenya has all but taken over my life. I love it! It started because I bought I print of Jenny Dolfen’s amazing painting of The Oath of Fëanor and I decided it would be cool to frame it with a Quenya translation of the oath (as found in Morgoth’s Ring) written in tengwar (I still haven’t done this, but I have the oath on my wall next to the painting!).
About me… let’s see.. I’m 23 years old and live in Tasmania, Australia… (that’s the little vaguely triangular island in the south east). I have a bachelors degree in physics and I am currently doing my honours in optical astronomy (nauvan meneldil!). I’m also an avid horse rider (nanyë roquen), study medieval European martial arts (polinyë turë macil) and do archery (ar quinga). I’m only fluent in English but I know a bit of French and Japanese.
I cannot remember when I first read The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings, but I first read The Silmarillion when I was twelve and that’s when my love affair with Arda began. Fëanáro was my favourite character then and that hasn’t changed (I used to use the screen name daughteroffeanor, judge that how you will). Hence, in-world I’d would be Noldo and would have been sworn to the Fëanorians, and post-Losgar probably Maitimo.
I can be found on twitter @almarexx or on tumblr almare.tumblr.com, or via email email@example.com and if you’ve any questions (about Quenya or physics!), requests or want someone to proof read something you’ve written please don’t hesitate to ask!
