Parma Eldalamberon 6 is the sixth issue of Parma Eldalamberon, a journal of linguistic studies of the Elvish languages and names in the works of J.R.R. Tolkien.

It is the first issue after its revival by Christopher Gilson. John Closson contributed with the front cover calligraphy, and Silas Andrews with interior artwork.

It includes a letter from Rhona Beare that reports brief notes made on a draft version of Thrór's Map. These notes consist of the phrase "Five feet high the door and three may walk abreast" in Noldorin and Old English. Rhone Beare copied the notes from the map when it was on display in an exhibition of "Cartographic Curiosities" at The British Museum. The draft version of Thrór's Map is included in J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator, figure 85.[1]
