As even Beorn noticed, wizards count differently to other people

To be honest, I haven't expected the whole week to be full of holidays, as it came out. I have no more access to the net from the office (where I spend loads of time), but now I'm at home, so present here as well

next one to be cracked up:

Quote:

"Oh, davaite ix vsex suda! Bistro! Dvigaite blije, vi, dvoe, i sadites! No slushai, ____, daje seichas u nas ti da desiat karlikov da hobbit, kotoriy poteralsia. Eto vsego odinadcat, da poterianniy sverxu, no ne chetirnadcat, esli tolko volshebniki po drugomu ne schitaut, ne kak vse ludi"
Russian. Clues in the intro

Oh, let them all come! Hurry up! Come along, you two, and sit down! But look here, Gandalf, even now we have only got yourself and ten dwarves and the hobbit that was lost. That only makes eleven (plus one mislaid) and not fourteen, unless wizards count differently than other people.
This is Beorn in The Hobbit in the chapter ĎQueer Lodgingsí. Is this the answer? [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Alright, then, I've decided to try a quote in Hebrew. My only problem is, I'm not all that great in that language. So please excuse any small error. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
Quote:
Isha yafa ____! Isha yafa ___! Achshav ha simcha she haya nahba* be ha shirim she anachnu shomarnu (is clear) li.
I couldn't remember how to say 'is clear' in Hebrew, sorry.
*I don't know whether the correct word here is nahba or saphon.

I can count to ten in Hebrew, and ask for some milk, but somehow I don't think that will help me solve this one. [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] Best left to someone else, I think.

Alright, three hints:
Isha= Woman (in this case, Lady)
Simcha= Happiness (in this case, joy)
Shirim= Songs

Not sure if that helps anybody at all, if not, I guess I'll have to say which book it's from [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Let's see if I can translate a whole paragraph into another language. Here goes my try.

"bonus manedies! nam die id iterum tandem est. ego (correct), vides. preacelsus in exortus cis _____ sumus. ante hodie est praeterit nos oportemus ad invenimus _____ et videmus _____ aquae iacet in _____ pro nobis?

Agh, not me. I'm too young for Latin... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] I meant along the lines of a word translation, but since it's Latin, I wouldn't get it anyhow... [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Actually, I understand quite a lot of it, but not all, but up to now, I haven't found where it can be.... I keep racking my brain.. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]
Just one question, Narduewen: Does "bonus manedies mean "Good morning" or am I wrong?

Yes Guinevere, bonus manedies does mean Good Morning, but I am not sure it is true Latin, but it does come from Latin roots.

Thanks for the offer, Narduewen, but I don't know if more clues will help me [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]
So far I understood the following words:

"Good morning! .... at last it is again day.
..........on this side....we are. Before this day is over, we must find ....... and we see....... water....in...... for us?"

Hell, I have searched everywhere in my books, but I'm just not able to locate it.
Well, perhaps someone else has an idea now?

This is the best translation I could come up with:

I have also searched and searched but can find nothing at all. [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

I can give the quote, not because of language skills, I have few, but because someone provided the majority of the quote so it was simple to fill in the blanks.

Quote:
`Good morning! ' said Gandalf: `For morning it is again at last. I was right, you see. We are high up on the east side of Moria. Before today is over we ought to find the Great Gates and see the waters of Mirrormere lying in the Dimrill Dale before us.'

Excuse me but my written language skills are weak, so my quote is short and sweet.

Do you perhaps mean Pippin, arriving in Gondor and asking:
"Where are we, Gandalf?"
but the correct French for that would be:
" Oý sommes-nous, Gandalf?" (Or, more complicated "Oý est-ce que nous sommes?")

btw, I was hoping you would come and look at this thread, GilraŽn, I was sure you'd be able to find this latin-quote ! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Correct Guinevere, I apologise again for my terrible french, unfortunately it is the better of my 'foreign' languages. I only got the last one from the translation given by another. I'll have to stick to english only in future [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Wow, at last some language I know a bit! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

"A time may come soon," said Aragorn, "when noone will return. Then there will be need of valour without renown, for none shall remember the deeds that are done in the last defence of your homes. Yet the deeds will not be less valiant because they are unpraised"

Thanks, Guinevere , that's one of my favourite scenes!

That’s Russian again (sorry if you are bored [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] ). To make it more interesting – that’s a poem my daughter translated for her Russian class. It’s not part of LotR, but could be, I guess. We found it in a tiny book with bright pictures on every page (does it help??)

Okonchen den’,
V glasah temno,
Lezhit put dal’nii predo mnoi.

Proshchai, moi drug!
Ya slyshu zov.
Korabl’ k plavaniu gotov.

Pena bela,
Volny sery kak stal’;
Moi put’ ved’ot v zakatnuiu dal’.

Question

Hm, I don't know any Russian. The only words I was able to find out are "den" = day and "proshchai"= farewell... But this and the exclamation mark, together with the hints that you gave, leads me to guess that it could be the beginning of Bilbo's Last Song
Quote:
Day is ended, dim my eyes,
but journey long before me lies.
Farewell, friends! I hear the call.
The ship's beside the stony wall.
Foam is white and waves are grey,
beyond the sunset leads my way.
Have I guessed right ? [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

"One who breaks a thing to find what it is, has left the path of wisdom."

I seriously have no idea where that might come though...Is it in LotR, the Hobbit, or...?

Ah , at last someone who knows French! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] Your traduction is correct, petit Choux. To give you a hint: the quote is from LotR, FotR to be precise. Can you find out, who said it?

The thread deserves being bumped up!

That was Gandalf talking to Saruman of Many Colours. (I guessed the speaker at once but it took some 3 days to find the scene [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] )

To keep the thread going – some more of boring Russian:

Quote:
“Ya poslannik Korol’a” skazal _____ “Ty govorish s korolevskim drugom, odnim iz samyh proslavlennyh vo vseh zapadnyh zeml’ah. Ty negod’ai i durak. Stanovis’ na koleni na doroge I prosi proshchenia, ili ya vsazhu eto prokl’atie trollei v teb’a.”
