Gelio Edhellen!

This is a bare-bones set of lessons meant to give you the general idea of my approach to Sindarin. If you want to get in depth, read my book, “A Fan’s Guide to Neo-Sindarin.” If you want a deeper approach still, take the lessons that involve me correcting and commenting on your translations, which costs money because it takes up a LOT of my time and energy. But, if you just want a surface glimpse of Sindarin, this course is for you.

*Asterisks are used to mark fanmade words, but fan-made grammar isn’t marked.

The dialect I’ll use throughout the lessons is the Exilic dialect, because it’s the best attested dialect.

We won’t be covering in these lessons how to make your own words either, that’s an advanced skill and again, it’s covered in the book and advanced students will get to learn it.

I put together these lessons for free, so please consider donating to keep the website (and its writers) alive! The donation page is on the main website: Donate

Editing Stage

The broad-strokes editing is done! Now we’re on the style/clarity/prose level of editing. This is the time for suggesting more illustrative examples, for making the sure the prose is easily readable and clear enough to get the information across. It’s not time for broad, sweeping changes to the structure and grammar taught in the lessons – that was the previous stage. If you have any such suggestions, get back to the Realelvish contact page and send Dreamingfifi a message. If you’re on the Vinyë Lambengolmor Discord group you can suggest your changes there too.
