Parma Eldalamberon (Quenya "The Book of Elven-tongues") is a journal of the Elvish Linguistic Fellowship dedicated to the linguistics of J.R.R. Tolkien's languages. Though Christopher Gilson is credited as its main editor, publisher and contact, Patrick H. Wynne, Carl F. Hostetter and Arden R. Smith. Cover art is usually provided by Wynne or Adam Christensen.


While, much like Vinyar Tengwar, its first issues published essays and enquiries into Elvish, the later issues featured original work by J.R.R. Tolkien. These include the Gnomish Lexicon in issue 11, the Qenya Lexicon in issue 12, and most recently the extensive onomastical enquiry "Words, Phrases and Passages in The Lord of the Rings" in issue 17.
