Is there a complete(ish) source on them similar to the appendix in The Silmarilion?

What's a burrahobbit got to do with my pocket, anyways?</p>

Re: Elvish languages

http://www.uib.no/people/hnohf/Ardalambion</a> is a most excellent site for learning Tolkien's languages.

Re: Elvish languages

There are also a few books available, but the accuracy of most of them seems to be questionable... The fellow who put together Ardalambion certainly seems to have done his homework, but it's pretty scholarly (read: dry) stuff and a bit hard to decipher.

Mister Underhill, I agree that it is rather boring to read, but what I do is skim read and then read the summary. It is also quite simply put, and I guess that the dryness is just a consequence of that.

Master Underhill,
I know of a web site that has many different, yet near complete Elvish Dictionaries including-
Quenya, Teleri, Drow, and more. I myself find it very practical. It is Learn Elvish Also Ardalambion is a good site. Home of the Elves is also another good site. it has i believe silvan elvish. I hope you take these under advisement.
Tenna' telwan!

I would recommend the Ardalambion site if you want to be sure that you are learning true, Middle-earth Elvish. All the other sites are slightly dubious, unless they are in some way related to Ardalambion or any official Tolkien sites. And by all means steer clear of any sites promoting Grelvish (Grey-Elven) or anything with "Drow." A true Tolkien-Elvish website wouldn't have information like that.

I agree. I can't think of any other languages more beautiful than Quenya and Sindarin. I'm trying to become fluent in them both, but due to my limited resources, I'm not really getting anywhere.

Mellonath Daeron, the language guild of the Stockholm Tolkien Society, Forodrim, has a website with quite some useful stuff... http://www.forodrim.org/daeron/md_home.html
