Portal talk:Languages

Revision as of 04:51, 1 December 2022 by (talk) (→‎Pronounciation of Gandalf: new section)

How do we organize the section "All languages"? Alphabetically or by some perceived importance? According to some system of groups (speakers, origin, etc)? --Morgan 20:37, 27 May 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I would prefer a system of notoriety/importance, but I don't mind how it's done.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  11:23, 28 May 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Remake this

The Portals are quite a waste. This in particular was too ambitious. It would be great to have here something similar to Template:Languages but more organized, instead of an abandoned and outdated dictionary. --LorenzoCB 11:57, 5 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Pronounciation of Gandalf

Gandalf is pronounced Gandalv. See Appendix E at The Return of the King under "V". In Sweden we have a history of spelling "v" differently, for instance "f", "fw", "fv" and "v". There are still many places, sport clubs, posh names etc. where an "f" is pronounced "v". The younger generations have not been tought this though.
