    Different images of Elves

    Well, in Estonia we have creatures called haldjad (singular being haldjas ). That's the word they used when they translated the word elf in The Lord of the Rings. They ( haldjad )are mostly connected with nature - there can be for example tree-elves, water-elves, stone-elves. Kind of like...

    What is odd? The grammar or the fact that you tried to learn it?

    How and where did you learn elvish?

    And 12 points goes to - Ardalambion! Actually I've only started to learn elvish and it's not as hard as I thought it would be. As for your sentence - melme na naikelea?

    ELF races

    Re: I am...... I personally think in the film Galadriel was much more beautiful than Arwen, but that's just my opinion..... Not that it would have anything to do with the topic.

    Thank you for knowing everything, Pontifex. Now I can look smart and use all these things in my posts. Yay.

    The Sindarin in the Fourth Age

    Of course there are elves still around here! We, mortals are simply too dumb to notice anything. That is too strange, Pontifex, just Monday I saw a S.Bullock movie and I thought she looked a bit elvish. Not that anyone could get even near to the elves in my imagination.

    En ole kyllä Pontifex, mutta haluaisin silti kirjoita suomeksi. Pari päivää takaisiin näkin tv-stä ohjelmaa, missä yksi mies arvas, että Helsinki ja Tallinna voisivat olla yksi kaupunki ja nimi voisi olla Talsinki vai Hellinn. Minulle tuntuu se toinen parempana, mutta mitä arvaisi...
