The Eldanar Tongue

DESCRIPTION:

The Eldanar Tongue is the Elven (sylvan) language which is easy to learn and has songlike qualities about it.

It has an alphabet composed of Magical glyphs. Each glyph is given an English letter, several Eldanar syllable sounds, a major arcana of the Tarot, astrological designations and a Nordic Rune.

The individual Nordic Runes are matched to Eldanar glyphs which have Tarot attributions of related meaning.

RULES OF SYNTAX:

Always look and listen for the first letter of a Eldanar syllable sound, as that is usually the English letter translation of the Eldanar sound. For example:

Let thy heart sing ever free.

Linestatyn Taehiemyid Hireldartaruntae Staristanirgil Eldavaleldarun Faerinelda

Two similar letters are not allowed to lie adjacent to each other in Eldanar words. Delete the extra letter. This helps pronounciation and translating Eldanar into English.

English words may be spelled as they sound phonetically to shorten the length of Eldanar words. eg. Know = No.

Usually the context of a phonetically spelled English word in a Eldanar sentence will let the listener know which English word is implied.

Speakers should attempt to artfully craft words and sentences which are easy for the listener to translate into English.

If one learns but one or two Eldanar syllables for each English letter of the alphabet they should be able to fluently speak the language, yet the more Eldanar syllables one knows the more beautiful their Sylvan speach shall be.
