Aia Kevin, manima parmanen párat?

Kevin Philippi Sep 07, 2017 (21:22)

I'm pretty new at this so I'm not sure what that means. You're asking me what kind of something?

Tamas Ferencz Sep 07, 2017 (21:44)

+Kevin Philippi yes, I asked you what kind of book you are learning from ☺

Kevin Philippi Sep 07, 2017 (21:51)

Oh awesome, i figured out some of that.
I'm using the book by Carl Fauskanger.
Mahtanyë i parma ló Carl Fauskanger.

Tamas, what is manima? Seems like one of the newer forms...

Tamas Ferencz Sep 08, 2017 (11:47)

+Evan A manima "what sort of? what kind of"? from PE22

Evan A Sep 08, 2017 (11:58)

thanks...wonder what -ima he was using to make that connection...or rather: Manima -ima mahtane Tolkien?

Tamas Ferencz Sep 08, 2017 (12:19)

+Evan A he probably used it as a generic adjectival ending there, like in vanima, vailima, mirima, nessima etc.

Wesley Stump Sep 08, 2017 (19:32)

"Mahtanyë i parma ló"?!?Are you telling me there's another elvish book out there that I have to buy?!?

Tamas Ferencz Sep 08, 2017 (19:49)

+Wesley Stump I think Kevin referred to Helge Fauskanger's Quenya Course there

Kevin Philippi Sep 08, 2017 (19:51)

I did, is there another book i should be using?

Tamas Ferencz Sep 08, 2017 (20:28)

+Kevin Philippi that course is a very good starting point. Later, as you progress, and are still interested in learning more, you can always start reading the original sources (published in HoME and in the journals Vinyar Tengwar and Parma Eldalamberon).

Wesley Stump Sep 09, 2017 (01:59)

+Tamas Ferencz Gotcha! I didn't know what was meant by "Mahtanyë i parma ló"! But you're right, the Vinyar Tengwar and the Parma Eldalamberon are very good resources after you progress.

Tamas Ferencz Sep 09, 2017 (08:35)

+Wesley Stump that sentence means something like 'i use the book by'

Wesley Stump Sep 11, 2017 (14:30)

I knew what it meant, (except for the ló) I just thought that was the title of a book!
