    Oh, were you looking for the Quenyan version? That was the only way I knew how to say it. I hope it helps anyway.

    This is a super old thread, but I need some help. I'd like to translate

    "I am my own soul. Not one can change me nor break me. I am one who controls my path and I am one to chose which direction I follow."

    to elvish if possible :]

    There are multiple versions of the elvish language ~ Quenya, Noldorin, SIndarin & the Grey Company's own interpretaion:

    http://www.elvish.org/resources.html (online section, gzipped pdfs)

    http://www.grey-company.org/Language/

    None of these have every (english) word translated so you'll need to work stuff out... for example (Grey Company elvish) for the word soul, the only reference is in soul spider ~ uuaina'liante ~ spider on it it's own is liante so the uuaina' bit is obviously soul

    It's easy enough, if time-consuming, once you get started :rolleyes:

    Hi this is the reason I registered here!

    I have a friend who use's the word kelebril and was apparently given this word by a friend who was big into fantasy. I had looked up the meaning before and thought i saw somewhere that it meant beauty but now im not sure if that is what i saw or not. I have a bad memory. Now I cant find it again. Im pretty sure that what I found before was a different spelling and obviously google doesn't help correcting the spelling of Tolkien languages lol.

    Any help would mean alot thanks :)

    what is the informal way to greet someone, like "hi"? and what's a good way to learn both written and spoken quenya? Yes, I am serious.

    Incidentally, I recommend trying google first if you want an english-elvish dictionary.

    Does anyone know what "mumakil" means? I'm reading The Book of Lost Tales II and noticed that the Rodothlim (so called in BoLT II; refers to the Noldor living in Nargothrond) started to call him Mormagli/Mormakil, meaning Blacksword.

    "Mormakil" reminded me of "mumakil", the term used in Gondor to refer to the oliphaunts of the Haradrim. Since "mor-" means "black" (Morgoth, Mordor, etc.), I assume "-makil" means "sword".

    I thought that the "-makil" in "mumakil" might mean "sword" (in reference to the tusks), but I'm not sure since "mumakil" is plural for "mumak", whereas "Mormakil" is presumably singular. Since the terms come from different, though related, languages, I wonder if the meanings are at all similar.

    Thoughts?

    As far as I know, the "-il" is just the plural ending, so one oliphaunt would be a "mûmak". I've tried to find a meaning for this morpheme, but couldn't find anything but simply "oliphaunt", so maybe it's really that simple. Maybe "mûmak" just stands for "oliphaunt" and there's nothing more behind it. D:

    Mûmak is the elvish word for I believe Oliphaunt (in the common tongue).

    It might also be something like walking fortress or something like that. I remember seeing it somewhere but I cannot remember where.

    now, when we say Elvish, might I ask whether we're talking about Quenya or Sindarin?
