Post Noldorin language/names?
on: April 15, 2015 01:21
I'm trying to create a name for a character of Noldorin descent, but I have no idea how such a name would work grammatically, just in general. Does Noldorin behave like Sindarin, with lenition and other mutations, or is it closer to Quenya?

Also, is there any chance of someone creating an English to Noldorin dictionary to complement the Noldorin to English one?

Hmm.

I would say you can use Sindarin for a Noldorin character in any case. The Noldor themselves Sindarized their names, or received Sindarized or Sindarin names, or took names in Sindarin form of course.

Not that you didn't know that already

As far as I know, outside of the "Noldorin" of the Etymologies (in the superseded scenario illustrated there)...

... Noldorin is a term used by some to refer to an internal dialect of Sindarin, a dialect influenced by the Noldor and Quenya...

... very generally speaking
