How do we say (…) in Quenya?

There are some unchangeable truths about Quenya: it’s Tolkien’s masterpiece, it’s superbly well-done, it’s beautiful and it’s limited! Due to its vocabulary limitation, I announce here the beginning of my compilation of the NEW QUETTAPARMAR. Am I going to create words out of the thin air? No, no way! That’s not the goal, not the point. I’m gonna bring together all the adaptations, useful expressions and etymologies which sometimes you must use if you wanna render a Quenya translation. I’ll expose here some of the questions people have already brought to me (How do I say this? How can I write that?) in order to help you all at once at one place at the same time! If you wanna request any random sentence, do it here! (Famous quote or lyrics? Then do it there!) Go to the bottom of this page and enter your request at the comment box there. Use your patience and when the time comes, you’ll have it translated as accurate as possible into Quenya with its analysis! So far, check below what has already been answered:
