Eärendil finds his harbour

Eärendil around the worldHe did it! Eärendil did it! This is the last part of ‘Eärendil series’ where we sailed around Google Translator listening to several languages pronunciation of this single Quenya word Eärendil and comparing it to Quenya phonetics. Which one is the closest of all? Follow this ride and find what Eärendil has found! Surprised or not, you’ll be aided to keep in mind the correct Quenya pronunciation! 

(While you read this guide, go to http://translate.google.com type Eärendil and listen each language mentioned below! A cool and easy tool to aid you with phonetics)

Portuguese

4 stars

Portuguese shares many phonemes with Spanish and that contributed for a high rate here. We got EÄRENDI here, so almost on the spot!

Norwegian

4 stars

Oh yeah, baby! Norwegian got a solid pronunciation like Hungarian did. The first E is too open, but we got ÄRENDIL pretty good.

Korean

2 stars

Well, as long as Far-East is concerned, Korean is good! It has firm vowels and some consonants stand up for the task. We got a ÄREND in Korea!

Slovak

2 stars

That’s another language I know nothing about and have never heard before. I can’t say more about its phonetics but in this exercise, we have a RENDI here.

Greek

4 stars

4 stars? Really? YES! Greek kicks ass! Quenya was based on Greek after all. But there’s a trick because of the alphabet. You gotta type Εαρεντιλ (Earentil) so you can hear EÄRENDIL. See? Whole word!!! Unfortunately, the stress is not correct, otherwise it’d be a 5-star!

Finnish

5 stars

Obviously, Eärendil finishes his tour in the land of the Finns! Finnish got it all! Pronunciation, stress. This is IT! It IS Quenya pronunciation of 

EÄRENDIL!

Eärendil comes and sails away

Eärendil

Eärendil doesn’t stop! Now it’s time to visit another places, check another languages. Resuming from our previous post, let’s listen different native people speaking their languages (through the use of Google Translator tool) and compare how close that pronunciation is to actual Quenya. Don’t forget: The word we take for our ride is Eärendil!

(While you read this guide, go to http://translate.google.com type Eärendil and listen each language mentioned below! A cool and easy tool to aid you with phonetics)

Italian

3 stars

No big surprise as Italian is a Latin based language like Quenya is. We got a good pronunciation of RENDIL here.

German

2 stars

German has a solid Quenya-like vowels resemblance, but the advantage stops there. Consonants are another matter. We got a good ENDIL here.

Dutch

2 stars

Dutch sounds like German (ok, that’s a superficial view) and for Quenya phonetics, Dutch behaves the same way as German too. There’s an ENDIL there and nothing more.

Russian

1 star

No, no. Russian is just not meant for Quenya. They wouldn’t get along. I heard a good REN even though the stress is absolutely different.

Hungarian

4 stars

Fantastic surprise! Hungarian nailed 99% of the word! It’s ÄRENDIL straight up man! A pity the initial E is too open for Quenya standards.

Spanish

4 stars

Spanish deserves a 5-star rate! Its phonetics is excellent for Quenya! Unfortunately, there’s a lil’ slip with the ERENDIL we hear there. Perhaps some regional variant wouldn’t miss the ä.

Wait! It’s not over yet! Eärendil is a mariner, he likes travelling and won’t stop his voyage just now! Stay tuned and sail away with him in the next episode of….

Eärendil around the World!

Eärendil around the World

EärendilShall we have an interesting exercise? It’s easy, quick and a pretty interesting tool for the ones who crave to listen to Quenya!

As it’s known, there is no online Quenya translator (that I am aware of, at least). Quenya is an artificial limited language and that poses double extra toughness for one to create such resource. I’m very happy about that as there are too many people pretending to know something about “elvish” with an online translator….I think you can picture the hell it would be.

But I digressed. I mentioned online translators here due to the resourcefulness of the ones available right now. Google Translator, the most famous, I guess; gives you the opportunity to listen many languages spoken by native people. That’s an A+!

Elvish Google

Now, here’s the trick: Which pronunciation would be closer to Quenya? For advanced students, that’s quite easy to answer, but let’s ride together and rate each language based on their phonetics. The word to be used as example is: Eärendil. The number of stars stand for how close that particular pronunciation resembles Quenya itself.

(While you read this guide, go to http://translate.google.com type Eärendil and listen each language mentioned below! A cool and easy tool to aid you with phonetics)

English

1 star

Awful! Nothing to do with Quenya. The only letter that sounds like Quenya is the D in Eärendil. Basically, English teaches you how NOT to pronounce Quenya!

French

1 star

Ouch! French may sound fancy but not for Quenya. We got only the DI in Eärendil sounding decently, the rest, oh no!

Czech

3 stars

Surprise, surprise! I know nothing about Czech but the sound is quite good for Quenya. We got the RENDI nailed in Eärendil.

Turkish

2 stars

Well, I have already heard a bit of Turkish and it definitely doesn’t sound like Quenya. Some phonemes are close though and here we got REN in Eärendil.

Danish

1 star

Uh-uh, not Danish! Again, there’s only the in Eärendil, nothing more.

Swedish

3 stars

Almost Swedish! Well, ALL phonemes are there, but the stress is not good. It falls in the last syllable and that’s weird (i.e. wrong) in Quenya!

Which countries Eärendil will visit next? Which ones will his Quenya ear be fond of? Stay tuned and don’t miss our next episode of….

Eärendil around the World!
