Word of the Day – Quenya, an Elvish language, spoken by the Elves. It is written in Tengwar (Fëanorian characters) and used vastly in the TA in Middle-earth.
Quenya origins and inspirations
It can be compared to Latin – Tolkien even referred to it as “Elf-latin” at times! It was taken from languages such as English and German as well as Latin.
Tengwar is the main system – an alphabet – though Tolkien did not describe it as such, since they weren’t related to each other, each having a distinct value.
