Precious

Proposed papers for a conference on J.R.R. Tolkien's invented languages:

  • An Analysis of Khuzdul
  • Vowel Affection in Sindarin and Noldorin
  • Expanding the Realm: J.R.R. Tolkien's Linguistic Persona
  • The Scripts of Aman: Sources, Developments and Relationships
  • Quenya, the Black Speech and the sonority scale
  • Phonotactic Preferences in the Root Repertories of "The Qenya Lexicon" and "The Etymologies"

If you thought I was joking, think again. It runs August 4-8 at the University of Stockholm. There is still time to register. (Link via Erik)
