I’m looking for sources of Neo-Quenya and Neo-Sindarin neologisms. I’m nearly done with my first pass through Eldamo neologisms, and I’m pretty comfortable with my approach to crafting new Elvish words now.

I’ve reached the stage where I want to start collecting neologisms invented by other people, since (a) I’d like to make as many words available as possible and (b) I find that I often prefer the inventions of other people over my own.

I’ve assembled the following collection of neologism word lists, but I’m sure there are others. Right now I’m looking for “large” lists, not individual neologisms, though I plan on collecting individual words as well at some point.

If anyone knows of any notable lists in addition to the ones given below, please let me know.


(it will be some time before I incorporate all of NQNT. It’s a big undertaking by itself).

I'll trawl through old Aglardh posts and if I find any neologisms in my posts that still make sense I'll add them to my list on GDrive.

Hi Paul,
I appreciate seeing my list here, but I hope you bear in mind it is still a work in progress as long as I haven't reached the end of my translation undertaking.

+Damien Bador I added a few words from your list, but I’ve stopped working on it for this very reason. It’s changing too quickly. I’m going to defer it until you finish your project.

+Paul Strack In fact, there are fewer and fewer alterations as time passes, but indeed there are still many additions (declensions or new words).

But I'm making progress : in one or two weeks, I expect I'll have translated the first 50 Psalms.
