Languages

ONe pretty cool thing about tolkiens universe are all the languages that's invented.

anyone who knows what this means?:

the language Adūnaic: ''Agannālō burōda nźnud..."

the language Quenya: ''alassėa''

an easy one (for some):the dark language: ''nazg''

Alassėa is Quenya for Happy

Nazg is easy - it is Black Speech for Ring. Gūl means spirit or wraith hence Nazgūl meaning Ringwraith.

The Adūnaic is tricky... I think it means "Death's shadow weighs heavy on us" or words to that effect. Its about the mortality of man anyway.

How about a question in Sindarin?

Do you know (or can you guess) what "Ash nazg durbatulūk" means?

Oh, you think you are SO clever... how about some Rohirric? Preferably something that does not translate to 'See orc, go ride, kill orc'

Errr... kūd-dūkan?

Rohirric is very poorly represented. Most names and places in Rohan are called by the names in other languages in LotR. For example, Rohan is a Sindarin word.

Go on, someone do a Sindarin question.

I never knew what any of the languages meant... It was gibberish to me.

i've always wanted to learn the languages! i've tried and tried but either i'm really slow and haven't put enough time into it or i need help. i'd really like some help! if anyone has devised a moderately simple gramatical structure for any one or two of the middle earth languages i'd be more than happy to hear from you.
wink

There were never any hobbitts called Frodo, Sam, Pippin and Merry, their real names were Maura, Ban, Razar and Kali eek!

Come to that, they don't call themselves Hobbits, either.
