Talk:Sindarin numbers

There seems to not be agreement on the words for 11 and 12, I read somewhere else that 11 is minig and here I see Mimp and Imp. --  Myrtonos  forum  c

Not having time to investigate the matter more closely right now, the author behind the "sindarin textbook" you're referring to says: "many things in the lessons are arguable and other linguists have other theories about how Tolkien would have done things. This is how I believe the Sindarin language is". I wouldn't, therefore, put too much trust in that webpage! ;-) --Morgan 16:37, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
When in doubt, try the Sindarin dictionary. mimp and minib are canonical words. Sage 21:22, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
Indeed, Hisweloke is a good source! I've used it a lot, and only encountered one small error (a page reference). --Morgan 21:25, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
