What really is the difference between "elven" and "elvish" ? Or does it really mean the same?

Elven is an adjective to describe something associated with elves or the qualities of elves. (according to wikipedia). Elvish is a term for the languages of the Elves, like Quenya or Sindarin. Galadree-el 11:24, 15 September 2007 (EDT)
