Kornoldorin

Revision as of 21:41, 22 November 2008 by Sage (Talk | contribs)

Kornoldorin, 'Old Noldorin', or Korolambë, 'Tongue of Kôr', was the language of the Noldor in Valinor. The Noldor used it beside Quenya, but unlike Quenya, it changed fast as the Noldor deviced new words and structures by themselves.[1]

In the Great Lands, the language evolved as Noldorin.
