I think it's time again to add some eastern flavour to this game. Georgian:

Quote:
<font face="AcadNusx">coli gamixda avad, kai xani ukve loginadaa Cavardnili, da vRelav. Tanac saxuravidan kramiti waiRo qarma, da saZinebelSi wyali Camogvdis. eqims unda gamovuZaxoT, da mSeneblebs kide, oRond egeni sul agvianeben xolme. xoda vifiqre, rame ficari, an tilo mainc xom ar geqnebaT, erTi-ori dRe rom gadavagoro
as a clue: "kramiti" is tile (or tiles) and "eqims" the doctor (in a grammatical sense (alas, I do not know the terms) that he's object of action, not subject of it). In case doctor himself were to act, in Georgian it would have been "eqimi" than. "mSeneblebi" are the builders.

Your clues confused me more than your quote did. It's been 4 days since you posted that, could you please give us a slighter more illuminating hint?

The chances of a doctor being in Silm are Slim! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
Riiight...anyway, I'd guess it was from one of the Adventures of TB or one of the other Tales from a Perilous Realm, or Roverandron.

Hmm, I don't think it's in Roverandom. But I could be wrong.... What about the book whose name I forget that deals with a man and a faery star that was baked into a cake?

Question

Oh, now it makes sense at last! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
It's from "Leaf by Niggle" !! (Somehow I had never been considering anything else than LotR...)

"My wife has been ill for some days, and I am getting worried," said Parish. "And the wind has blown half the tiles off my room, and water is pouring into the bedroom. I think I ought to get the doctor. And the builders, too, only they take so long to come. I was wondering if you had any wood and canvas you could spare, just to patch mw up and see me through for a day or two."

I don't understand anything except the clues you gave, but it must be that, I guess. Am I right? [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

I hope you don't consider this quote as too short, but it's such a lot of work translating ... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

I'm sorry, I thought it would be almost too easy, because my last Italian quote was solved immediately, and because Heren Istarion seems to know all European languages anyway... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

"ho" is the 1st pers. singular of "avere". It means : I have
"devo" is the 1st pers.sing. of "dovere", it means: I must
"capisci" is the 2nd pers.sing. of "capire", it means: you understand.

Clues:
PODALSHE OT VREDA=further away from harm
DRAGOTSENNIY=precious (masc.)
GOVORIU= I say/am saying

I didn't translate it literally, to keep the Russian properly grammatical (If someone will point out a big error now, I will be VERY embarrassed.) [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Nobody? [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] Is that Georgian? What an interesting looking language, with all those capital letters. Anyway, I have no chance at all, I can't make head nor tail of it. There must be somebody here who can solve it... (please!)

Perhaps we need more clues, Heren-Istarion, since nobody else understands Georgian . [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] (I sure wonder how that language sounds!!)

capital letters re:

Elanor, it's different character set, it just looks English so you'll be able to read it. To see it as it is intended to be seen, one may download and install AcadNusx.ttf

Copy and paste it into Word application and select AcadNusx font and see how it is supposed to look like

if the link above is not working, try the following: AcadNusx.ttf

Question

Well, at least I'll try. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

I have found a passage which contains these words which you gave as clues, but the number of the other words doesn't correspond with it.
It's in "The Hobbit", when Bilbo and the dwarves arrive in Lake Town.

Quote:
"Then all the more reason for taking us to him," burst in Fili, who was getting impatient at these solemnities. "We are worn and famished after our long road and we have sick comrades. Now make haste and let us have no more words, or your master may have something to say to you."
Could that be correct? [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]
(Quotations in a totally unknown language are more difficult than "fill in the blank"!)
