HELLO!!!

Hello I'm Amrûn and I'm a MASSIVE fan of all Middle-Earth realated stuff. My beautiful LOTR paperback is DEADish so i annoy my library by always borrowing them out. I'm a horibble speller, not to good with computers and i love the appendices/indexes! Nice to meet you all!!

Hello and welcome! Love the name but isn't it Grey-elven rather? I think it's attested in...

 

'The names of the letters most widely known and used were 17 n, 33 hy, 25 r, 9 f: númen, hyarmen, rómen, formen = west, south, east, north (cf. Sindarin dûn or annûn, harad, rhûn or amrûn, forod).' Appendix E

 

Well, it's actual Elvish in any case, and that's good in my book smile

Hail Amrun and well met.

This site will scratch that itch for your love of appendices/indexes. Every one here has a great deal of knowledge and are constantly raising interesting questions of the past, from the Tale of the Two Trees to LOTR and beyond.

Get in there and have fun.

Yeah, see I got it of a footnote from falling dipthongs in Quenya in one of the appendixes (can't check right now, wrong edition), but it didn't give me the language it was in.

Hmm, I think that when you check this you'll find that the footnote with amrûn  (at least the one I think you're talking about anyway) is related to the statement on Sindarin long vowels -- especially prolonged vowels being marked with a circumflex and so on -- rather than the next footnote on diphthongs.

Welcome Amrun. Good to see another thought-out elvish name among us.
