If Aiwendil or lindil has no way to email these thing to me, my email address is RigelMizar@aol.com. I say this in hope I will have time to read the material and formulate ideas, though my...

I see your point and the perdictament Aiwendil, in that respect I am wont to try lindil's proposals as they have proven in the least enlightening in the past. I would agreeably say that in the...

Ai, but as to your first I answered as well. It would not only be in principle, but also irrefutably needed, as Tolkein never had the opportunity to smooth some of the more dibilitating wrinkles in...

Its always good practice in authoring to make your related storys' ends meet, so to speak. Great authors don't make a habit of contradicting themselves in later works. It could possibly help to link...

No, you are quite right, as JRRT said in the RotK appendices that "c is pronounced as k in positions..." Why would he say that if Quenya had no 'c'? One of the Tengwar's letters is Calma, not kalma...

Well, as in so many instances, Aiwendil is the Linguistical Backbone of the cannon. (is 'linguistical' even a word?)

I'm with you there, lindil!

So where are we at:
Laegolas:6
Laigolas:0
Laiqualassė:1(2?)
Legolast:0
So, unless there is a miracle mind-changing turn-around, the vote seems to be as unanimous...

You may also note some of my other reasons, such as the fact that Laegolas and Laigolas are one letter away from the origional, yet the Quenya is only similar in its begining. Some may think of the...

It is as it may seem; I do not agree with the Sindarin form of the Legolas name. Elves lived a loooonnngg time, so it is very possible that Legolas in LotR and Legolas in the Sil are the same person....

I belive that though ork was later JRRT's preference, orc would be the better, because it does not contradict LotR or any other non-Sil books(though in the hobbit, they were called goblins).

I vote for Legolas (not Legolas Greenleaf), as to not contradict LotR. This is the same reason on my decision on the orc/k issue, but that is another topic. Unless we can otherwise provide background...

I think that is very true. It does...

Replacing Noldorin with Quenya would, in my eyes, remove a little of the history and evolving culture of the Elves. This is not to say that it is a complete no-no, but rather a taboo. We could toss...
