Ostadan writes: One of J.R.R. Tolkien’s seminal works, the Qenyaqetsa, or Qenya Lexicon, is being reprinted. This is the first documented version of the language that eventually became Quenya, and dates from around 1917, and although it is expensive, I consider it indispensible for those interested in tracing the development of Tolkien’s languages. Be warned, though, if you think you can ‘learn Elvish’ from it — it is *not* a “Quenya Dictionary”; the language changed considerably by the time Lord of the Rings saw print. [More] [Shop]
