As many of you may know Hidalgo, for personal reasons, has left Minas Tirith. Before he left he asked me to take over the running and organising of the Index to this forum; a request that after waiting a couple of weeks to see if he will return I have now taken upon myself for him until when and if he does return to take it off of me. As it is not possible for WGW to give me access to Hidalgo's thread I have no other option but to redo the Index under my name, giving me a cleansweep so to speak in the Index department! However, I am not a language master and may from time to time ask for help as to which section to put various threads in from the more cunning linguists amongst you! I have taken the liberty to give this Index the same look and feel as the other Indexes. The main difference between this Index and Hidalgo's original is that I have divided it into two posts. This first post deals with language questions directly relating to the works of JRR Tolkien. The second post is divided into sections that have more of a 'reference' feel to them.
I know we already have a 'Search' function and useful as it is it doesn't present threads in an alphabetical order or indeed in subject order. Below you will find an index of all the threads in this forum in subject sections and alphabetically placed within these sections.
In this post you will find questions relating to ~ Elvish Languages ~, ~ Names ~, ~ Other Tolkien Languages ~, ~ Pronunciations ~, ~ Questions Concerning Specific Words ~ and ~ Written Languages ~. The section on ~ Elvish Languages ~ is further divided into sub-section that include Quenya and Sindarin questions. After each link in the ~ Pronunciations ~ section I have added the word/ words in question due to nearly all the threads being titled 'Pronounciation'!
In - Post Two - you will find the more 'reference' type of questions as well as works by the citizens of Minas Tirith using the languages created by JRR Tolkien.
In this second post of the Language Index you will find question of a more reference nature as well as language projects and courses run by citizens of Minas Tirith.
This part of the Index is divided into sections on ~ Language Classes and Courses ~, ~ Languages of the World ~, ~ Miscelanea ~, ~ Projects ~ , ~ Reference Threads/Dictionaries ~, ~ Tolkien's Writing Style ~ and ~ Translations ~.
OK, that's this Index reordered; I hope Hidalgo would approve If anyone feels I've made any glaring mistakes please inform me.............gently!
