Silmaril Elvish Insults!

1. I am sorry if this topic has already been done
2. I know it should probably go in the language section but I wasn't sure if it would insult anyone there so I thought it best to post here.

Anyone know any good elvish insults that you can shout at your boss or teachers without them knowing what the hell your on about?
Here are some:

Nadorhuan(rim)= cowardly dog(s)

Auta miqula orqu= go kiss an orc

Amin delotha lle= I hate you

Antolle ulua sulrim= Much wind pours from
your mouth

Lle naa haran e' nausalle= you are king in your imagination

Amin feuya ten' lle= You disgust me

Lle holma ve' edan= you smell like a human (oooo, harsh [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img])

Llie n'vanima ar' lle atara lanneina= You're ugly and your mother dresses you funny

Oh harsh! Lol! Never mind insulting - you could do more damage by making people laugh to death! They are funny! Which elven language is it? Quenya?

In the language I made up, "Go kiss an Orc" is "Ja kass eni jhana" [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Once again, the Grey Company... This website does not use true Tolkien Elvish. It is based on it but is not the languages created by Tolkien. But then again, if you want to use them, the person you are insulting probably won;t know the difference. Just remember, it is Tolkien based, not Tolkien.

I insulted a girl who was making fun of me at a bookstore for liking Tolkien stuff.

Amilelya fumm nu rauco. "Your mother slept under a monster."

The funny thing was, this Elrond-lookalike who was standing right next to me burst out laughing because he understood Quenya, which bewildered the poor girl even more.

The great part was he also asked me out. Unfortunately, my parents did the exact same thing that Elrond did when he found out about Aragorn and Arwen. Mine claimed that the guy could be a serial killer in disguise and that I was too young to date. So, I resorted to screaming "Narely raucor!" at them repeatedly.

From what I've seen, guy who be short, most of these are Grey-Elvish expressions. Now, as we all know, Grey-Elvish is based loosely on Tolkien's language, but they are not actually the words of Tolkien. After consulting the Council of Elrond dictionary, "evil" in Quenya is: ma, ulca, saura (which refers more to being evil-smelling, or putrid). In Sindarin, it is: um, balch, and gl (which is evil magic). An evil creature is "raug". Ooo! They have Noldorin now on the Council of Elrond. An evil creature is a "rhaug" or a "graug". In order to say "You are evil" in Sindarin, one could probably simply say "Le ma", as they tend not to use the verb "to be" much (similar to Russian in that regard, I suppose).

EDIT: and yes, "ulundo" means monster, as does "vanimo", which means, literally, "a creature of Melkor". In Sindarin, it's "an" or "ulunn". "Ulun" and "ulund" mean "monster" in Noldorin.

Hmm... I don't think elvish is that much of a good language to insult people in... However when my sisters get on my nerves I love to confuse them and insult them in one blow:

Thaur rakuo
abominable demon.

(I can't be bothered to get my elvish dic. out and check the spellings... sorry! [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

There are several different words for "monster." Both ulundo and rauco mean the same thing.

For those of you who are interested here is how you say "You're ugly and your mother dresses you funny" in real, Tolkien Sindarin:

"Le uanui a lin naneth hab le gladhaen."

The i in "lin" and the a in "hab" both have circumflexes over them. (circumflex=> ^ ) I hope you all can find this information useful.

In Sindarin or Quenyan? Because in Sindarin, Losto means "sleep".

Well, "dol" means head and "lost" means "empty". The "d" sound would probably be lost due to the many consonant mutations in Elvish. So yes, Lostol would mean "empty head".

Oh, and that's Sindarin.
