Hi Elfling Community,

I'm making a glossary and phrase-book for the Mannish languages spoken
at the time of Bilbo and Frodo:

http://Https://sites.google.com/site/endorenya/glossary

Though I try to work myself into the perspective of the texts, it's not
an academic work. I extend the 'fictive translation' device beyond the
Northman (=Germanic) languages, to encompass all Mannish tongues. So
medieval and modern languages serve as 'stand-ins'--until we get around
to crafting the actual languages.

If anyone has any words to add to the glossary, feel free to share.
