Hello guys how are you? I need your help. And forgive me for my English. I'm looking for language lessons for Valarin. I searched but I didn't find anything. Can you help me? I don't know if there is something here... Or if you have a site suggested to me..... And thank you for any help.

I don’t believe JRRT himself wrote much of anything of the Valarin language. Quenya and Sindarin are what he was involved in over decades, and by far the most developed of his languages. The rest is scraps, at best, and those of languages spoken in Middle-earth. I’d guess that almost nothing exists about Valarin anywhere. Sorry.

Given that there's so little of it, I've never really given Valarin much thought outside of how it sounds and some of the longish names sounding cool.

According to the link above, concerning grammar: a plural infix -um- appears to appear in Mâchanâz pl. Mâchanumâz "Authorities, Aratar".

Gando already noted the very limited corpus, and according to the link, this infix might be the only thing that seems somewhat safe to say about Valarin grammar! Concerning syntax (link again), adjectives seemingly follow nouns... if so, now we need thousands more Valarin adjectives and nouns...

... just for starters :-D

Thank you guys..... Elthir I have already seen this site, but I didn't know if there was anyone else with more informations. I'm stuck with this language. For sindarin and quenya it's OK, I have find lessons, but Valarin seemed even more interesting to me. Thank you once more.
