These exercises are based on the information in Thorsten Renk's and Helge Fauskanger's Language Courses. So first of all I want to pay honour to all the work they have put into those courses, and thank them for making it possible for so many of us to learn and enjoy using Tolkien's Elven Tongues.
Because they do not always agree in every detail I have made some choices as to which one to follow in certain situations. This may mean that your answers look wrong
, when they may just be different
. Double check, and make your own choice - that is good practice as well!This is not a course
, on their own these exercises will NOT be enough for you to learn all you need to know
but they will provide more practice for those who are using one or both of the courses - found on the Ardalambion website - http://www.uib.no/people/hnohf/
; and on the Parma Tyelpelassiva website - http://www.phy.duke.edu/~trenk/elvish
To do these exercises you will especially NEED to use Helge's Quenya - English Wordlist
to find words and provide you with extra vocabulary.
Each exercise has a VERY BRIEF summary of the usage on which the exercise is based. More detail will be found in the full courses.
Feel free to ask questions
; to make more sentences of your own
and post them here; to point out any errors of mine
you spot - there are bound to be some!Answers have been put in a separate topic - so that you can't cheat too easily!!!
