A Gateway to Sindarin: A Grammar of an Elvish Language from J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings
A Grammar of an Elvish Language from JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings
From the 1910s to the 1970s, J.R.R. Tolkien worked at creating plausibly realistic languages to be used by the creatures and characters in his novels. Like his other languages, Sindarin was a new invention. In A Gateway to Sindarin, David Salo has created a volume that is a serious look at an entertaining topic.
David Salo is a doctoral candidate in linguistics at the University of Wisconsin. He was the primary linguistic consultant to film director Peter Jackson for the "Lord of the Rings" movie series.
