If you use this tutorial to make a deviation of any kind, kindly comment below and tell me so. I'd love to view your work,
it, and possibly critique it, if you so desire. You don't have to credit me in the comments, seeing as I didn't actually create
Elvish, but I really want to see if you used it.
This took me like, 2 or 3 days. But that's just because I'm distractable.
I also have this available as a Word document, if you want it for printing purposes.
Sorry, the computer the Word document was saved on is LONG gone!!!

thanks to for this fabulous workbook!!! I suggest comparing my tutorial and this workbook to get a more rounded view on how to write in Elvish! NOTE: The workbook is a pdf, just to let you know.
Apparently this workbook has disappeared!!!
Elvish fonts found at [link]
... They're fabulous, but make sure you use the character map pdf that comes with it, or what you think says "mellon" will actually say ldfyywhw! And yes, that's what it will actually say.
If there is anything else you want to know, just tell me!
P.S.- Want a REAL challenge?? Translate THIS! [link]
P.P.S.- I just noticed this, I messed up the example for Quenya, with the word "Elemmire"... The Tehtar are pretty much all in the wrong place. The "practice" example is correct, however.
P.P.P.S.- OHOHOH. If you wanna learn real elvish, go here, it's a great website!!! [link]
...or you can get the book The Languages of Tolkien's Middle-earth [link]
by Ruth S. Noel, it's veeeery helpful.
P.P.P.P.S.- I like P.S... hehehe. Check out this website
I take requests/commissions on Elvish calligraphy such as this.
Right now itís free because Iím not a greedy person, but I donít know how long it will stay that way.
Please see my journal [link]
