Let's guess!

How many PE issues or years will be taken until every meaningful linguistic material by Tolkien is available?

Then, how far could we go to the complete Q and S so to speak?

There can still be other major elvish texts to be released?

Honestly I, just a beginner, have no idea and want to hear from you gelydh:)

I bet on 40 Parmar (and, we hope, a couple of dozen more Vinyar).

Quenya grammar is pretty much complete already now, hence my endeavour to write a primer.
What I keep dreaming of is a major piece of text in Q or S, I don't know, 3 pages from Silmarillion translated or something ☺️. And, more Sindarin grammar

+Tamas Ferencz No, please! If we get a Sindarin text, it will feature 90% of words and formes used never again and contradict all grammatical texts!

On the other hand it would keep us busy for the next ten years...

+Александр Запрягаев PE 40 or 40 more issues? Either way I may not be alive then XD

+Tamas Ferencz Real prose in Q with such length...I dream that too!

We know there is at least one major unpublished Noldorin grammar and one unpublished discussion of Noldorin phonetics from the 1930s or 1940s, though these could be a single document.

Not to mention the documents on Taliska and Weston.

+Александр Запрягаев that's what I fear as well ;)
