Foreword

 

Mellonamin,

Below you will find simple grammatical rules and word lists for use in creating elven phrases. Much effort has been put into making the process as simple as possible. A section on elven roleplay may also be found after the word list. The Grey Companyís Elven is a growing language based 'loosely' on the elven found throughout JRR Tolkiens works.As we strive to nurture its growth, all input is encouraged and appreciated.

 

This Guide has been slightly modified to the needs of the GlamerVelt. Some words might have been added or changed to suit the style of the Velt Elves. Some parts not relevant to the Velt have been removed. Credit for this incredible piece goes to the Grey Company Guild. The original version of this document can be found at http://www.grey-company.org.

This dictionary and accompanying phrase guide represent uncountable hours of work by the members of the Grey Company. Permission is given to distribute this dictionary for role-playing purposes as long as the entire dictionary, including the credits for those who did the work, is kept intact. In other words, don't pretend you made it when you pass it out. If you add your own words and phrases, please inform a member of the Grey Company so we can see to it that the new words are added, you'll be given credit for it.

 

How to Use

 

First I want to say that it is NOT REQUIRED to know all of those words or speak fluent elvish. We would encourage you to know at least some basic elven words, such as hello, farewell, yes and no, since this adds to your Rping and the enjoyment of the game. Feel free to expand your vocabulary over time with the terms you like and use them ingame or in your posts.

††††††††††††††† * rationalize your derivation, before using the words that you create.If a suitable words for

††††††††††††††† †† derivation do not exist than make one up keeping in mind simplicity and the nature of elven.

††††††††††††††† * when taking a noun from a verb stem:

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† 1) conjugate to present form for direct noun (i.e. ele- to see, elea(v) sees, elea(n) sight

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† 2) for a related term, append either o or u to the stem (i.e. eleo - eye)

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† 3) when ascribing the verb to a person, append ar to the stem

††††††††††††††† * when creating words from two or more words, append together and drop enough letters from

††††††††††††††† †† the appendor to avoid cumbersome letter sequences (see below)

 

8)PHRASE CONSTRUCTION:

††††††††††† * Use subject - verb - object(add adverbs and adjectives as above)

††††††††††††††† * Phrase questions as statements followed by question maker.

††††††††††††††† * Words such as a, does, would etc. may be inferred from the context of the phrase.

††††††††††††††† * When appending pronouns or adjectives, you may drop letters from the appendor

††††††††††††††† †† in order to eliminate awkward sequences of letters.Examples would be avoiding

††††††††††††††† †† 3 consonants in a row, 3 vowels in a row,or 2 of the same vowel in a row.

††††††††††††††† Examples:
