これは 1820 [エルフ語 学びますか?] への返信です


>Youngsters at Turves Green Boys' Technology College in Birmingham are being offered weekly after-hours lessons in Sindarin, a conversational form of Elvish invented by "Lord of the Rings" creator J.R.R. Tolkien and based on Welsh sounds.


Elvishで検索すると、“The Languages of Tolkien's Middle Earth”という本が出てきました。この本のレビューには“This is the book on all of Tolkien's invented languages, spoken by hobbits, elves, and men of Middle-earth -- a dicitonary of fourteen languages, an English-Elvish glossary, all the runes and alphabets, and material on Tolkien the linguist.”と書かれています。私はこの映画を見ていないので、ホビットとエルフとミドルアース(中世の地球??)の男らが話していたとかは、なにやらわけの分からない話です。(笑)

著者の紹介には、“J.R.R. Tolkien was born on January 3, 1892. After serving in the First World War, he embarked upon a distinguished career as a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford University. He is the renowned creator of Middle-earth and author of the great modern classic, The Hobbit, the prelude to his epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings. Other works by J.R.R. Tolkien include The Silmarillion. J.R.R. Tolkien died in 1973 at the age of 81.”とあります。こっちはフィクションじゃありませんよね。(汗)
