Revision as of 12:33, 22 January 2009 by Sage (Talk | contribs)

Vanyarin Quenya, also sometimes called Quendya to distinguish it from the Noldorin Quenya, is the dialect of the language as spoken by the Vanyar in Valimar.

History

Since the Noldor came to Middle-earth and their language became known among the Sindar, the Silvan and afterwards the Dunedain, Vanyarin is considered a less known, elusive language, spoken only in Valinor.

The speech of the Vanyar was more conservative than that of the Noldor who were more innovative, also the Vanyar being closest to the Valar, had many Valarin loanwords in their language.
