Lurking-Vi

Quote:

THERE IS NO CHANCE that the elf-language you made is anywhere near as articulate, plausible, or developed (in the imagination of its fandom's fans) as
1) the made-up ferengy, klingon, or vulcan languages of Trekerrs
2) the ACTUAL language spoken by the elves of mordor


It is one thing to be surmising that the wonderful clan who lives in your imagination HAS a distinct language; it is another thing to discover an elvish lexicon (that isn't some CODE-key derivative of the Romance Languages). I believe that you are wasting your efforts. Please consider that J.R.R. Tolkien had heard, through telepathy, proper chatter and began to decipher an authentic language, unlike STAR WARS and elfQuest races, whose languages are superimpositions of human-like dialects.

Wow. That has to be one of the two rudest comments I've seen on this site.
