Sindarin Classroom

Teacher: [ilanyus]

Sindarin is a language invented by J.R.R. Tolkien. In the world of Lord of the Rings this is the language spoken by most elves in Middle-Earth.

There are a lot of sites that has a lot documented about Sindarin, I will mention a few of them.

Since Sindairn comes from the same ‘ancient’ elvish language as Quenya, the two languages are alike in some respects, though at first glance they don’t really look the same (btw, the ancient language is called Quenya) . So I have to say it might be possible that I refer to some Quenya grammar as example. I will try to keep it to a minimum.

2004-09-23 [LonelyTylenol]: Question: is the punctuation different in Quenya and Sindarin? Second question... Only, I don't remember what it is.

2004-09-23 [ilanyus]: there are some differences :) for example, the Sindarin 'period' is different (in Quenya you use sindarin colon for period)

2004-09-23 [LonelyTylenol]: That's what I thought.

2004-09-23 [Wirey]: thanx for signing me up Ilanyus! ^^

2004-09-24 [ilanyus]: no problem and good luck :)

2004-09-24 [LonelyTylenol]: Question: Do you have a scanner, Ilanyus?

2004-09-25 [ilanyus]: errr, I should :) but I don't know if it's working... do you want me to write things?

2004-09-25 [LonelyTylenol]: Well, no. I don't need it as of yet, I'm just thinking that eventually it will prove helpful... Just a thought.

2004-09-25 [ilanyus]: heheh, yeah it would prove helpfull, since not everything is quite as clear... and without seeing it might prove difficult... hmm... well I do have some texts I've transcribed (like Namárië :P) but those are all in Quenya :) not Sindarin... so I'll have to see what I will do, but it's a good idea!

2004-09-25 [ilanyus]: oh btw, if you're ready to procede to the next lesson, just edit the page and put something behind your name, like 'done' or something... think that will be the most effective way for me to know that I can start the next lesson

2004-09-25 [LonelyTylenol]: Well, I can right in some sindarin. And I do have a scanner, though it's hooked up to a computer I rarely use except for printing and scanning stuff. I may even be able to help with this first lesson a little because, like I said earlier, I do occassionally write notes to my friends in elvish. Actually, I only have one friend. Anyways, we use the English tongue but the elvish tengwar.

2004-09-25 [LonelyTylenol]: Yeah, the scanner might just help in explaining how to write it. But I already know and I don't know about your other student.

2004-09-26 [ilanyus]: yeah so I'll start making the next lesson :) to introduce some grammar :P this was just a little bit of introduction anyways huh :) I think it's best if you just write behind your name wether you are ready with the lesson or not :) makes it easier for me heheh

2004-10-01 [ilanyus]: wondering if anybody is alive around here? *pokes* I'll soon start lesson 2 I guess... but offcourse I will make another wiki for previous lessons

2004-10-02 [LonelyTylenol]: I am!

2004-10-03 [ilanyus]: haha, I have created the first version of lesson 2 :) will have to look it over again I think, but it's probably good this way heheh

2005-04-03 [Ninja Squirrel]: Awesome! I didn't know Sindarin was taught. I've been unsuccessfully trying to learn it for almost a year. Sign me up!

2005-04-03 [ilanyus]: haha ok welcome

2005-04-03 [ilanyus]: btw... should I continue to the next lesson?

2005-04-03 [LonelyTylenol]: Well, I'm very not caught up... Well, I suppose I might be... Haven't really checked.

2005-04-06 [ilanyus]: w00t more students ;) welcome
