So many folks have been asking questions about the Elvish languages since the movies came out and we have an opportunity to learn a bit about this now! Elostrion has volunteered to teach a short course in “How to Construct a Sindarin Sentence”. The beginning lesson will cover syntax, which is how a simple sentence can be structured and the order of words. Elostrion says, “It is not complicated, but people seem to have a problem with it.” He wants to point out that this is for beginners. Perhaps as time goes by, if this proves popular, we can expand the lessons. Elostrion’s class will be held in #thehalloffire Wednesday, Feb 5, beginning at 7pm EST (6pm CST, Midnight GMT).

Here’s how to get there: either use this [java] link or follow these instructions for IRC clients: #thehalloffire on the server; come to’s chat room Barliman’s and then type /join #thehalloffire. For further information, be sure to read the new Barliman’s FAQ.
