    I want an inscription of some certain quotes so I can look at them and possibly use them as a tattoo. Preferbly in Quenya or Sinderian. PM me for the quotes.

    Er...please excuse, but I thought I'd help with this before someone writes it in stone somewhere.
    Sindarin for black wind is: gwae (wind) vorn (black/dark...from morn. The
    'm' is changed to 'v' because the adjective lenits)
    Adjectives come after nouns except in rare cases.
    Hope this is helpful.

    LTJpunker: there isn't really a word for reality. You may have to go with something like 'truth' or 'what is seen'.

    HawkBat: thor (thoron) for eagle is pretty close, although dagor is battle, not bat. You could be a battling eagle...lol I actually kinda like that one.

    Hello ! I 'd like to learn how to build sentences in elvish( you know, verbs, words...).I suppose it is far too complicated to be explained entirely here, but just a little bit would be great.

    Melian, a great resource to learning Tolkien's Elvish can be found at www.councilofelrond.com in their Language section. You're right, it's pretty complicated, but they have broken it down into different lessons (verbs, plurals, lenition, adjectives, etc...) that are very easy to understand. It's a little confusing at first but you'll get the hang of it. They have lessons for both Sindarin and Quenya there. I like Sindarin better, because it sounds nicer (to me) and is what was in the films, but Quenya might be easier to learn as there are more attested words and sentence structure is closer to English than is Sindarin.

    I agree with Grond. They have the most comprehensive study course around, plus many links to other resources. I think Grond may agree with me that if you want to learn either Sindarin or Quenya it will be a labor of love. It is hard work and lots of hours. It has taken me about a year to start getting comfortable with some translating.
    For those of you with linguistic skills, or those of you who actually listened to your English teacher, you may find it a bit easier.

    Whoever asked for a word for brave.....beren is bold, and beleg is mighty.
    Hope that helps.

    Well, Gil-Galad, it's been a very long while since I worked with Elvish, but I believe I've got the Quenya for what you want:

    Nai Valar nar elyëllo oialë.

    It may or may not be perfect, but it's as good as you can get, or close to it, I believe. Literally, it translates "Be it that the Valar are even with you for ever" (the "even" simply being a part of "you," as an imperative "even you"). If you want the Sindarin, you'll have to wait a bit (if I can get it at all... I can't seem to find "may"). It's not as easy to work with after you stop using elvish for at least a year.
