An Introduction to Elvish
Ivy Divider


Below you will find simple grammatical rules and word lists for use in creating elven phrases. Much effort has been put into making the process as simple as possible. A section on elven roleplay may also be found after the word list. The Grey Company's Elven is a growing language based 'loosely' on the elven found throughout JRR Tolkiens works. As we strive to nurture its growth, all input is encouraged and appreciated.

This dictionary and accompanying phrase guide represent uncountable hours of work by the members of the Grey Company. Permission is given to distribute this dictionary for role-playing purposes as long as the entire dictionary, including the credits for those who did the work, is kept intact. In other words, don't pretend you made it when you pass it out. If you add your own words and phrases, please inform a member of the Grey Company so we can see to it that the new words are added, you'll be given credit for it.
