All right, this site definately has all the perks lol. i'll be looking into this language as in depth as possible. unfortunately, there are MANY versions of this language, kinda like how Spanish is different in Spain, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. is Quenya the more common Elvish? also wouldn't be a bad idea looking up Archaic Elvish, you know the oldest Elvish language ever written. that would be fun.

Quenya is Classic (described by Tolkien as Elvish-Latin, Book-tongue)
Sindarin, is common; and related to all other Middle-earth elvish dialects (such as Silvan, Northern Sindarin and Exilic Noldorin Quenya adaptations...

Ancient Elvish is called, Ancient Eldarin

Primative, galadâ
Silvan/ Nandorin, galad
Sindarin, galadh
Quenya, alda

Well, I'd be interesting in joining this. I've been interested in learning this as a language for some time now, it's just that I never have enough time to devote to learning it on my own. Having a tutor, or even someone with a solid grasp of the language to explain a few things to me would be great.

So, let me get this straight:
Quenya is Tolkien
Sindarin is Common (or a simpler form?)
Grelvish is associated with the 'Grey Company' (which I've heard of)
