My God! This book is horrendously inaccurate. The text is so incoherent and vague I can hardy understand what the author is trying to say. One minute, she is talking about some so-called "similarity" between an ancient Greek or Roman god and something from Tolkien, and the next she states there is nothing the same about them except for there appearance. It utterly confuses even the most dillegent and devout fan when she begins to speak of grammar and sentence structure; in fact, the only clear thing in this wildly overpriced book is the rune and tengwar charts she copied out of LOTR!

This book is very outdated and not entirely accurate. It really contains only a fraction of the available Tolkien language material, and there are some languages that nobody even knew existed when this work was published.The chapters about Dwarven names and those of the Hobbits and Rohhirim are good, though. As for the rest of the book, if you want up to date, accurate info, I advise you to go to Helge Fauskanger's excellent web-page, Ardalmbion [online] the biggest and best resource on the net or in print.

This is a horrible gloss of Tolkien's invented languages, rife with errors and inaccuracies. If you are interested in this subject you would be much better off with "The Lost Road" and other books in "The Histories of Middle Earth". Even Jim Allan's "An Introduction to Elvish" (which predates the publication of "The Silmarillion") provides better information that Noel's book.

Again, this book is very inacurate. For a primer, it is much too disordered, and much too small for a definative book. Jim Allen's Introduction to Elvish is a good place to start, if you can find it. Try Nancy Martsch's Basic Quenya. As for Noels book, the chapters on runes and vocab. are decent, but no more than you get in LoTR and the Simarillion.

Eine gute Übersicht über alle 14 (!) Sprachen, die im Hobbit und im Herrn der Ringe auftauchen. Die Autorin hat jeweils eine Liste für Englisch-Mittelerdisch und eine für Mittelerdisch-Englisch zusammengestellt. Darüber hinaus gibt es ein paar Angaben zur Grammatik von Quenya und Sindarin. Nicht genug, um irgendeine der Sprachen zu beherrschen, aber keine falschen Annahmen, wie Tolkien dies und jenes gemeint haben könnte.

Die Graphik ist sachlich, aber übersichtlich.

Mir persönlich fehlt das gewisse Etwas, um 5 Sterne zu vergeben.

This book was probably never meant as a Teach Yourself Tolkien's Languages Like Elvish. (no, not Elvis) It is a reference book, but you can learn bits of various languages from it. I am slowly learning Elvish my self from it, and wrote a poem about some fair Elvish maiden..... Yeah, it is impractical as a source of education, but then again, none of Tolkien's languages were fully completed and documented.

I discovered this book back in 1980, when it first came out. At the time it was without a doubt the best source I had ever seen. Unfortunately the tiny book was poorly constructed and eventually deteriorated from over-use. I am thrilled to see it still available here, as most conventional locations return querries with blank stares. The Histories books by Christopher Tolkien may be more comprehensive, but the information is handy in Noel's text. Unless I encounter a high elf, the translations are adequate for most needs and more convenient than lugging around a ten volume hard bound set. Last I would note that Ms. Noel gave us a lexicon for fantasy long before the current craze (i.e. Klingon language resources) and thus was way ahead of her time. An old favorite...

Ein überholtes Buch, das aber auch zum Zeitpunkt seiner Abfassung schon mangelhaft und voll von Fehlern und Ungenauigkeiten war.

Now...it might be incomplete, and roughly inaccurate... Reading 'The Languages of Tolkien's Middle-earth' is not like reading all of Tolkien's works (and fragments). However, those who know Tolkien will understand how HUGE a more accurate and precise work on the subject will have to be. Thus I think this might be a good starting point (easy, pocket-size and simple) to adventure into Tolkien's Ordered Babylon...

I am learning to speak elvish and so is my friend. I plan to go around talking in that language as much as I can. It's a great book!
