The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 264 - Convergence

14th January 2016 (20:28)

I wonder if the Sindar realised that their language had changed from Quenya to Sindarin during the 3000 years or so they were separated from the other Eldar, or if they assumed they were still speaking Quenya?


    Part 264 Convergence



    Next time: Part 265: Second Battle of Beleriand

    Chibis by the now-dead website formerly known as tektek.org
    Original story by and copyright to J R R Tolkien, ed. C Tolkien: Primarily based on the Silmarillion, but incorporating ideas from the 12-volume History of Middle Earth series.

    The oldest Sindar would be complaining that young people today don't use correct grammer, use words to mean the wrong thing and have this "trendy new slang".

    Considering that Sindarin is to Quenya as Welsh is to Finnish, that's some pretty extreme slang!

    Heh... I like how Gothmog says "We have more elves" as if he was saying "I just saw more ants in the kitchen."

    Cool crown, Morgoth.

    "You get high up enough, and, well, the people, they do start to look like ants."
