I am thinking of making a Quenya course for English speakers. Although it’ll take me a while to consider the benefits and disadvantages, I have a pretty good.

Many aspects of Quenya grammar are aprendre with this type of fluctuation in Tolkien’s many conceptions of the language. My guess is that was the sort of complication that was tying up the Klingon Duolingo course. Actually, our knowledge of Klingon and Valyrian is far greater than our knowledge of Quenya or Sindarin.

Como se diz (…) em Quenya?

Granted, pronouns is probably one of the most confusing parts of the language and subject to change every time Tolkien worked on the language but it’s also a very important aspect of a language. As much as I would love a Quenya course, I feel as if it is too open to interpretation to make a good course.

I also found this source for the language’s grammar. I’ve always wanted to learn Quenya and it would be great to have a duolingo course on it!

Index to the Etymologies by Elvish words – where do you find the word you can’t understand? I think Duolingo should teach it as Neo-Quenya explicitly, it’s the only thing we can get, and although it won’t be tolkien’s language, it will be a lot like it. To know that the clarification to a bit of sketchy grammar may exist out there, but that we can’t get our hands on it A German rendering of the Khuzdul articleby Jandrim, is also available.

Quenya generally has much better documentation and a much longer history. Indeed, if the course were based on David Salo’s Sindarin that is used in the movies, I would have to decry queyna as something wholly different from Tolkien’s Sindarin. Aprennder i had the same idea and would love this course, but i have one question. Yeah, I was gonna say I have used Ruth Noel’s book; maybe the best thing about this thread is the links Eard and others provided to Elvish websites where I can explore further.


Any course made on Quenya is going to be imperfect because we do not know Tolkien’s final decisions on many aspects of his grammar, and therefore Quenya enthusiasts have to do too much guessing, which means that everyone’s Quenya is a little bit different.

In my opinion, the problem is even worse for Sindarin. Polish – all the original Ardalambion articles translated by Gwidon S.

And the problems only start there. But I think I can do it if I interpret some things. I have been learning Quenya for years, but I must say I struggle because there are not many people to practice with. With Duoling, it would be much easier to aprende learn Quenya! Elm qhenya Ales Bican’s page featuring lists of post-Tolkien Quenya words, a list of Quenya translations of common names, and several Quenya poems!

I don’t think it would be one too many fictional languages either, since Sindarin is already in the first phase of development. It’s a really great resource. Would adding Quenya make the amount of fictional languages one too many? Norwegian – various translators have finally rendered much of my material into my native tongue I have to write for an international audience myself!

Poems set in a certain place and age Look how fast Valyrian came up, it wasn’t even in beta not to arpender finished last week, and a few weeks before that wasn’t even being made! But in Quenya there are plenty of neo-versions, i knew of 3 just local to sweden due to roleplaying friends.

As for Ryszard’s comprehensive Sindarin Dictionary, you can read about it here. Let’s make this course happen!

The course is not actually listed in the Incubator unlike Klingon, for example, which is being actively developed and is listed in the Incubator: Thanks to Robert for this one! Ardhon Ellammath – “Realm of the Elf-languages”, with many sound-files of Elvish texts read aloud! For a few of Salo’s book on Sindarin, see.


So if Duo has a Sindarin course listed in their Incubator, I think we should rally some Quenya speakers to catch up and get moving on our own Duo course.

I absolutely agree with you. It requires a much more involved study of the history and development of the language over time. Apreender languages have more history behind their development than fictional languages so I don’t see why Duo wouldn’t work for Quenya but does for the multitude of real-world languages it offers. Oh, I’m not discouraging anyone from learning more about Quenya.

It would be aprenfer interesting to see a Quenya course added. They may later have been revised so that qeunya no longer correspond exactly to my original articles.

BTW I believe that for most of us even if it sounds a bit ignorantit would matter that we can learn something close as close as possible to the Q or S. He even changed things after they were published in LOTR.

Actually, even though it is more of a code aprended a language, I can read gnomish from Artimus Fowl without a key. As for my Quenya course, I understand there now exist several Spanish translations; here is one by Antonio Palomino. Whereas you can finish the Spanish or German tree and have a decent knowledge of those languages qeunya have a auenya small vocabulary compared to a native speaker, the Quenya and Sindarin course can boast that someone who completes the whole tree will have a complete mastery of not just the grammar but also the entire known vocabulary.

Duolingo should wait until it already teaches Finnish and Welsh, and until it has the permission of the Tolkien Estate see http:
