The Elven Language
12/16/01

Mellonamin,
Below you will find simple grammatical rules and word lists for use in creating elven
phrases. Much effort has been put into making the process as simple as possible. A
section on elven roleplay may also be found after the word list. The Grey Company’s
Elven is a growing language based 'loosely' on the elven found throughout JRR Tolkiens
works. As we strive to nurture its growth, all input is encouraged and appreciated.

Lissenen ar' maska'lalaith tenna' lye omentuva

* -ed endings are expressed using the past tense conjugation.
Example:

7) CREATION OF NEW WORDS


* keep it simple, use portions of other words, and try to remain true to the flowing nature of elven
* before using the words your new words, either post them to the GC private folder entitled Elven
Language Discussion, or get written permission from the Keeper of The Dictionary.
* rationalize your derivation, before using the words that you create. If a suitable words for
derivation do not exist than make one up keeping in mind simplicity and the nature of elven.
* when taking a noun from a verb stem:
1) conjugate to present form for direct noun (i.e. ele- to see, elea(v) sees, elea(n) sight
2) for a related term, append either o or u to the stem (i.e. eleo - eye)
3) when ascribing the verb to a person, append ar to the stem
(i.e. oht-war, ohtar - warrior)
* when creating words from two or more words, append together and drop enough letters from
the appendor to avoid cumbersome letter sequences (see below)

8) PHRASE CONSTRUCTION:
* Use subject - verb - object (add adverbs and adjectives as above)
* Phrase questions as statements followed by question maker.
* Words such as a, does, would etc. may be inferred from the context of the phrase.
* When appending pronouns or adjectives, you may drop letters from the appendor
in order to eliminate awkward sequences of letters. Examples would be avoiding
3 consonants in a row, 3 vowels in a row, or 2 of the same vowel in a row.
Examples:
Amin mela lle. I love you.
Lye nuquernuva sen e dagor We will defeat them in battle
Lle anta yulna en alu? Do you need a drink of water?
Uma, amin naa fauka. Yes, I am thirsty
Amin sinta thaliolle e dagor I know your strength in battle.

Roleplaying Aids

Story of the elves:


There are many creation stories of how the elven race came about. Elves and magic originated
close to the same time, and it was only later that the creation of humans, dwarves and other lesser races
came about. Although interesting, the following is where we are at today as this world often becomes a
confusing place.
There are four primary branches of the elven race, most common being the high elves, then gray
and wood elves and unfortunately, dark, drow elves. Elves tend to be a bit slimmer than most humans, and
depending upon variety, either taller or shorter than humans, but rarely an average height. They do not have
facial hair. (Although some elves have been seen with beard disguises, <not popular with our sword
master>)
The spoken language is one that is as flowing as a melodic brook. An elf may live to be older than
1,200 years and is generally about 130 before he earns the stature of being accepted as mature by other
elves. It is very rare, if ever, that an elf is ever known to pass from this life due to the wearing of years.
Before that happens, they become compelled to depart the realms of men. Where they go is uncertain.
Elves are generally not evil, with few exceptions such as the drow. Most would be considered
neutral as the world is seen more as gray or a balance of good and evil, life and death. Often times there will
be a tendency to lean towards being good, just because of the caring of others and nature.
Elves are quite handsome and have a greater appreciation for nature’s beauty, dancing and singing.
Their humor is clever, as well as is their song and poetry.
As compared to human and dwarves, elves are generally brave and not foolhardy. Their common
drink is, unless of course a good Fey wine would happen to be available <sometimes even a poor one if
given the choice of ale> that of mead, preferably heated to a blood warm temperature. Drinking to the
excess is uncommon, although there are times when a bit of Fey wine or a bit of Dwarven spirits are
misjudged. Ale is a very uncommon and somewhat bitter beverage. However some of us have traveled so
much with the dwarven clan, a slight taste has been acquired in order to become a gracious acceptor of an
offered mug.
Relationships with humans is often times distant. Whether it is by choice or that a human is often
hasty, indecisive, and comparatively short lived is questionable. Dwarves are competent allies and some
make good friends, but they have different lifestyles that are not generally compatible with elves. Elves do
not care for the caverns, caves or mines that our dwarf neighbors are so fond of.
To some other races, elves are sometimes considered aloof, snooty and frivolous and have
personalities that are impossible to fathom. In fact they are not, perhaps because of their longevity. Elves
have learned the benefits of patients before passing judgment and take time before making judgments. This
is also why the waiting period before acceptance into the Grey Company is generally one month. For an elf
to not even have patience that long sometimes shows traces of having spent to much times with the other
races and their values.
Although they do not make friends easily, elves consider oftentimes associates and friends as near
equals. An elf-friend is a very close, dear and honorary title that is difficult to earn and given to those who
are stoic, honorable and follow many elven ways. Likewise, an enemy of the elves is never forgotten,
especially the evil ones of the woods.
All and all it becomes apparent why the elves have always endured throughout the years and are
the most superior of races. With values, pure hearts, respect, honor and closely held blood ties, the elven
race will continue far long after man has gone.

Elven holidays
Yenearsira - Winter Solstice, the Elven new year. A day of rebirth.
Sheelala - A day of games and practical jokes celebrated in early spring.
Ehtele'mele - Vernal equinox. A week of romance and song.
Faradome - Summer Solstice. A celebration of the battle between Corellon and Gruumsh One-Eye.
A night of orc hunting.
Yavieba - Autumnal equinox. A week of reflection and a time to remember those who have left this world.
Most important decisions and judgments are made during this week.

Favorite Elven Wines


Saerloonian Glowfire-pale wine, luminous, taste reminiscent of pears.
Saerloonian Topaz-yellow amber wine w/ nutty quality and bold fruit overtones.
Mead-sweet wine of fermented honey.
Elverquisst- a ruby-colored liquor magically distilled from sunshine and rare summer fruits. Utterly
smooth, the liquor is nonetheless flecked with gold and has an iridescence of both color and
flavor. It is highly prized at all times, but in the autumn rituals it is savored as if it is the gift
of one final, perfect summer day.
Evermead-THE elven mead, imported from evermeet. The one to which all others are compared
and found wanting
Clarry-table wine blend sweetened w/ honey and spices.
Arabellan Dry-fine red wine, very dry woodsy overtones and a slight berry taste.
Berdruskan Dark-heavy sweet and burning, almost black, HIGH alcohol content.
Morimatra-a spiced wine favored by the Drow.

Other Items Of Interest


Kholiast-elven card game consisting of a 1000 card deck, dice and a very difficult method of counting
points. A high elf favorite.
Shalaquin-long necked elven instrument, plucked or strummed string tension is controlled by a
ratcheting wheel.
