That is incredible! [In reply to] Can't Post

Did you watch the weatherman's "transformation" video?

I don't know how his pronunciation was, but he sounded great, no matter! Love the guy! Laugh

That's amazing! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's so beautiful too! I loved this comment:

Let's find an uninhabited island, found a Constitutional Republic, and proclaim Sindarin as the official language.

Yes, let's!!

Let's try to transcribe it! :-) [In reply to] Can't Post

I've tried to decipher and transcribe it. I've managed two first sentences:

http://www.elendilion.pl/...orecast-in-sindarin/

Calan vaer Ennor
‘Good morning Middle-earth’
Si abgen edregol an in laer ovol
‘Here is a special forecast for the summer ahead’.

The word ovol is strange. I cannot analyze it. Maybe I am erroneous?

P.S. Sorry for my English :-)

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

He looked a lot like the NZ Airline steward, to me...and he did seem to really relish the role. Great find, thanks!

Transcript [In reply to] Can't Post

His Sindarin is really very good. I think the text was translated by David Salo from the LotR and H films. I have tried to reconstuct the whole text and this is the result (it still has obscure places):

http://www.elendilion.pl/...orecast-in-sindarin/


Calan vaen Ennor
"Good morning Middle-earth"

Si abgen edregol an in laer ovol
"Here is a special forecast for the summer ahead".

Lin naur ui urui di Obel-i-Pheriain a menil luin
"In Hobbiton it will be mostly hot with blue sky"

i ast aer a firad i Drann
"the ideal time to visit the Shire"

Fiar bain in dir
"The lands are looking good"

ah ast vaer am randirath
"And it's a great time for travellers"

O Girithron na Ninui "From December to February"

natha ovras a chared a chened
"there will be plenty to do and see"

No alued i laer lin

"Have a fantastic summer!"

Hey, Galadhorn... [In reply to] Can't Post

I was reading this thinking... hey, this is a good translation. It reminds me of... wait a minute...

then I took a look at your user name and profile! :-)

Welcome to TORn. It's good to see you still providing Elvish translations on the web.

Thanks for the translation.

(Have you taken a stab at any music lyrics yet? I'm not doing any of that for The Hobbit, you know.)

Gwaith-i-Phethain Reports [In reply to] Can't Post

Ai, Mellyn!

Dear Magpie, nice to meet you again. :-)

I am waiting for the lyrics of "The Hobbit" sountrack and yes, I am going to analyze it with care. It all will be published at G-i-P in it's new place: http://www.elendilion.pl/category/gwaith/

All what I have found so far is summarized here: http://www.elendilion.pl/...ary-to-be-continued/

Why aren't you going to do any lyrics analysis for "The Hobbit"? It would be great if you did :-)

Let us find each other on Facebook :-)

One place I've talked about it is here: http://www.amagpiesnest.com/...ts/state_of_site.htm

Your new site looks fantastic.

And... I don't do Facebook. :-)

The text is almost complete [In reply to] Can't Post

Magpie, I understand. I will try to do my best to find the explanation for the lyrics in "The Hobbit" (so far I could hear there some Sindarin, Dwarvish and Adunaic).

And the reconstruction of the Sindarin forecast from the NZ's tv is almost complete (with the glossary). You'll find it here:

G-i-P Report: Abgen edregol an'ni laer di Ennor

Calan vain Ennor!

S abgen edregol an'ni laer 'ovol. Lim naur ui urui di 'Obel-i-Pheriain a menel luin. I ast vaer a thirad i Drann. Thiar bain i ndr ah ast vaer am randirath. O Girithron na Nnui natha ovras a chared a chened.
