Hehe.:-) So, come and learn Quenya or Sindarin!:-). I have several updates to report. First, I’ve started work on Sindarin Lessons. The lessons have forced me to rethink out the language, so I’ve changed my mind yet again on the Sindarin Pronoun system. I need people willing to be guinea pigs to take the lessons.

This is a bare-bones set of lessons meant to give you the general idea of my approach to Sindarin. If you want to get in depth, read my book, “A Fan’s Guide to Neo-Sindarin.” If you want a deeper approach still, take the lessons that involve me correcting and commenting on your translations, which costs money because it takes up a LOT of my time and energy. But, if you just want a surface glimpse of Sindarin, this course is for you.
*Asterisks are used to mark fanmade words, but fan-made grammar isn’t marked.
The dialect I’ll use throughout the lessons is the Exilic dialect, because it’s the best attested dialect.
We won’t be covering in these lessons how to make your own words either, that’s an advanced skill and again, it’s covered in the book and advanced students will get to learn it.
If you want to see the whole course in one document, I made a GoogleDoc version of Gelio Edhellen!
