Linguistic wise id like some more info of calambar (like who used to words to who...elf told that to a man or so?) and silef (sounds to me like silverish synonymous to glor- used in gloredhel and glorfindel) words.

Regarding calambar, Tolkien himself used the word in a note of congratulations upon the birth of a child of a friend.

ok about the silef as mentioned i kinda see it as a word which rather refers to some idk silver coloured shimmewring,gliterring or hows the word...pretty much like glor- in glorfindels name

I totally agree with you on silef. The root forms SIL/THIL and (G)LAWAR are silver/white and golden light respectively as indicated by the names of the two trees of Valinor, Laurelin and Silpion.

will correct you here,second tree is known as Telperion the tree more favoured by the elves living in valinor by of the two. :)

The two trees have several names. Silpion is another name for Telperion. - Eldamo : Quenya : Silpion

ik i just simply like the telperion name of its :) why i was asking of the silef is that i have naming ideas for my upcoming new character in the lord of the rings online in case they will be told having sindarin names,for case of quenya name i (hoping for making it grammar wise correct) made the name Annatan (simply it reflects my acting since the begining of playing that mmo :) )
