KWE is an Elvish etymological base that expresses concepts of articulate speech and (subsequently) an eloquent being, a person.

Contents

KWENE

KWENE is an extension of KWE[1], the basis for the concept of "person", beings capable of articulate speech, hence "persons" as opposed to animals lacking any form of language. and specifically an Elf, since the Elves were the first speakers who defined themselves.

KWETE

Another derivative of the root KWE, related directly to speech.
