I'm new to this forum so please have patience. In the movie, which language is being spoken by Arwen & Aragorn? Quenya or Sindarin? I believe the song that Enya sings on the sound track for the "theme" for them is Quenya. I tho't most of the songs, poetry, etc were in Quenya, tho Sindarind was the more common spoken Elvish tongue. I would like to learn more about the Elven languages as well. Thanks for any help in this quest.:)

"May it Be" contained some Quenya. Aníron is Sindarin. There's a good amount of movie dialog in Sindarin, as expected (being the usual Elvish "daily speech"), though there's Quenya too. Arwen speaks Sindarin to Frodo, A & A speak some Sindarin to each other before the Ford scene, for examples, the Bruinen "spell" ~ Sindarin during the romantic scene in Rivendell while Aníron ("I desire") plays in the background ...

oh and mae govannen :)
Sindarin (basically means) "well met"

Look here for the elvish script, or for the whole english script (no elvish)
