Hostaina Aranië Lienórëo (Bundesrepublik Deutschland)

Today, it’s a HOLIDAY! The German Unity Day (10/03/90) aka Tag der Deutschen Einheit when the nation became united and one single Germany came to be (once again). No more East Germany, no more West Germany, nur…DEUTSCHLAND!

Deutschland

 

So, as I love maps and as I love Germany, I couldn’t help it but present to you all the Elvish version of Germany map with place names composed according to its etymologies. Behold, the land of the people, i Lienórë:

Deutschland auf Quenya

 

I cannot imagine how hard that must have been for people who lived in Luxunor under the shadow of a terrifying wall that cut a deep trench in the German Unity. Families, friends, lovers, all of them divided simply because of politics, ideologies….yikes! I wasn’t there, I didn’t live that kind of reality, but I can sympathize and understand the pain it must have caused such a distressing situation. Thankfully, that is past! There is no Rómenya Lienórë nor Númenya Lienórë anymore!

Deutschland auf Quenya Tengwar

 

Für die deutsche Einheit!

It’s time, it’s TIME!

Time logo

Time what is time! An abstract notion that entangles us in a way there is no escape to the inevitability of the passing time in this physical world! Wow……how philosophical!

Lúmë

But this post is not about philosophy! It’s just an enhancement in the organization of My Special Day in the Elvish Calendar page.

 

Now you got section where all dates converted so far are separated by timelines! So easy, so well organized! Quenya101 primes for that and is always trying to make things better. Take a look, request your special date…it’s all about TIME!

THE NEW CENTURY BEGINS – XV

sunset-01

We are here, gathered together my friends, not to celebrate only the new elvish year (XV 1) which starts at sunset this March, 29th, 2017. No. We’re here because a NEW CENTURY starts! Not a human century though which are shorter, but an elvish one which lasts 144 years!

Last Yén started on March, 29th, 1873 and so you got an idea how far back that was, let’s check some interesting events that happened in the beginning of the XIV Yén:

05/01/1873 = 1st US postal card issued (and now we’re on the age of the internet for some decades where postal cards are pre-historic)

07/21/1873 = Jesse James gang’s 1st train robbery (and now we see those old Wild West stories on movies and not on the news as real life daily routine events)

09/06/1873 = Regular cable car service begins in San Francisco  (and the revolution on transportation didn’t stop there, did it? After all, we went to the moon not on cable cars)

Which changes will there be in 2160? Will there be peace after all? Is death be long gone? New technologies which we don’t even dream right now? Cure for all diseases? All these may be far-fetched, but so was the internet, the movies and the rockets in the year 1873, right?

Shire

When is the sunset where you live?


Also, we are proud to announce a NEW version of the Elvish Calendar designed by Erutulco Eruntano, our Quenya Master here, which gets rid of some bugs happening with the days of the week and so on. Now you got a better and enhanced version to calculate your days like an elven boss!

Tengwar calendar

You can change the languages now to: English, Spanish, German, Russian, Quenya and Quenya (Tengwar) beta version.

Elizabeth, my Tengwar is thine…

tengwar-bathory

And here it is!!!! The 3rd original and exclusive Quenya101 Tengwar font to be released, Tengwar Bathory.

melda-eruvanda

 

As dark as it can get, Tengwar Bathory is dedicated to Elizabeth Bathory (kind obvious huh?), the blood countess who has inspired many songs and movies due to its cruelty and brutality when killing young women only to bathe in their blood. [OUCH! Nasty!]

Wow, dude! What a fantastic font to write in red blood and pure white in the darkest of pics. By the way, credits must be given to Mariam Zakarian and Jessica Lundberg! You can see their beautiful art here.

With a gothic style and dripping blood with its sharp corners, Tengwar Bathory is ideal for translating that black metal lyrics into Quenya. The writings in the image above is an example. You can check their meanings here and here.

Below, a Quenya pangram so you can taste the flavour of Tengwar Bathory:

tengwar-bathory-pangram

There you go. Don’t forget to stay tuned for more!!! The 4th Tengwar Font is out in the oven…hmmmm, so delicious….

Þorn & ƿynn

ampersandEAs the previous post showed there was a time that Latin Alphabet had 27 letters. Yes, English was written with 1 additional letter, the &. (due to Latin influence). Now, before there was even a Latin influence to be accounted for something, there was Anglo-Saxon culture and their Runic Alphabet known as fuþorc to start with. FuÞorc! See? There’s already a different letter right there, right? Read below a little bit more about the history of our own alphabet and those 2 extinct letters…

Þorn & ƿynn

(thorn and wynn)

Our analysis start with  Old English. English was first written in the alphabet mentioned above, the Anglo-Saxon fuÞorc, also known as Anglo-Saxon. The Angles and Saxons came from Germany and settled in Britain in the fifth century. The region they inhabited became known as “Angle-land,” or “England.”

Abecedarium_anguliscum_scan

Eventually, Christian missionaries introduced the Latin alphabet, which ultimately replaced Anglo-Saxon. But for some time, the alphabet included the letters of the Latin alphabet, some symbols (like &), and some letters of Old English.

As Modern English evolved, the Old English letters were dropped or replaced.

(Our trusty alphabet isn’t the only part of language that has changed — October used to be the eighth month, and September the seventh.)

ye-olde-pizza-shoppeHere’s an example:  In Old English, a letter called “thorn” represented the “th” sound (as in “that”) in Modern English. In the Latin alphabet, the “y” was the symbol that most closely resembled the character that represented thorn. So, thorn was dropped and “y” took its place.

That is why the word “ye,” as in “Ye Olde Booke Shoppe,” is an archaic spelling of “the.”

The Old English letter “wynn” was replaced by “uu,” which eventually developed into the modern w. (It really is a double u.)

The letters “u” and “j” didn’t join what we know as the alphabet until the sixteenth century.

And per se And

tumblr_m7xje9NcsY1r8en8vo1_500Alphabets! Great group of symbols designed to express a language in written media. Alphabets are present in our everyday life (right now you’re reading one arranged according to English language) and we never realize the long story & journey each single letter has to tell. For instance, what happened to the 27th lost letter of Roman alphabet? What was it & why it’s not around here anymore?

Johnson & Johnson, Barnes & Noble, Dolce & Gabbana: the AMPERSAND today is used primarily in business names, but that small character was indeed the 27th letter of the Latin alphabet. Where did it come from though? The origin of its name is almost as bizarre as the name itself.

The shape of the character (&) predates the word ampersand by more than 1,500 years. In the first doug-ampersand-1-480x960century, Roman scribes wrote in cursive, so when they wrote the Latin word et which means “and” they linked the e and t. Over time the combined letters came to signify the word “and” in English as well. Certain versions of the ampersand, like that in the font Caslon, clearly reveal the origin of the shape.

The word “ampersand” came many years later when “&” was actually part of the English alphabet. In the early 1800s, school children reciting their ABCs concluded the alphabet with the &. It would have been confusing to say “X, Y, Z, and.” Rather, the students said, “and per se and.” “Per se” means “by itself,” so the students were essentially saying, “X, Y, Z, and by itself and.” Over time, “and per se and” was slurred together into the word we use today: ampersand.

(The ampersand is also used in an unusual configuration where it appears as “&c” and means etc. The ampersand does double work as the e and t.)

getimage

The ampersand isn’t the only former member of the alphabet. There are MORE and it’ll be shown for the curious and avid minds soon. Stay tuned.
