  1. A Tolkien’s Dictionary • Among the most impressive accomplishments of JRR Tolkien are the languages created for the numerous creatures of his novels and, in his notebooks, for his own intellectual nourishment.

  2. "Elen sila lûmenn' omentielvo—A star shines on the hour of our meeting" • Quenya or High-elven is the most prominent language of the Amanya branch of the Elvish language family. In Aman there were two dialects of Quenya, Vanyarin and Noldorin. For historical reasons, only the latter was used in Middle-earth. The only other Eldarin language spoken in Aman, Telerin, could also be considered a dialect of Quenya, which was usually held to be a separate language. • Compared to many other Elvish tongues, Quenya was archaic. It preserved the main features of the original Elvish language, invented by the Elves when they first awoke by the mere of Cuiviénen - a tongue with "many...beautiful words, and many cunning artifices of speech“.
