Primitive Quendian

Revision as of 22:12, 6 June 2011 by Tik (Talk | contribs)

Primitive Quendian is the proto-language of the Quendi, or Elves, which they spoke soon after their Awakening.

Primitive Quendian split into Common Eldarin and the many Avari languages. The etymologies published in The Lost Road and Other Writings and also later etymological essays often derived terms common to Eldarin languages to Primitive Quendian bases, and a list of some Primitive Quendian words is given in an essay Quendi and Eldar (in The War of the Jewels).
