Need help with elvish translation Can't Post

I didn't know where to put this but I'm writing a story and I need help on some elvish I want to know how you say "Go with our blessings" or any variant on that in Sindarin . The character who says it is an elf from Rivendell I think they speak the sindarin dialect right? I'm not really well versed in the languages lol or if possible translate it to Khuzdul because it is said to a dwarf

Yes, they spoke Sindarin [In reply to] Can't Post

All Elves spoke Sindarin as a common tongue. Quenya was a language of ceremony and lore by the era of LOTR, kind of like Latin.

Here are some helpful links for translating to Elvish:



Based on those, my best guess for "Go with our blessings" is "Glenn ah mín galu." But it looks like that last word is unattested, a guess by linguists based on Noldorin, Tolkien's earlier language that turned into Sindarin. No idea on the Khuzdul version. There aren't a whole lot of words in that language.

A guess [In reply to] Can't Post

I get something like this:

Le a lennen na galurimin (gelurimin)
to thee and journey-your be blessing(s)-all-our

Le- to thee

a- and

lennen- lenn=journey, -en=hypothetical posessive suffix

na- be

galurimin- galu/(gelu)=hypothetical root for blessing,(plural), rim- collective plural suffix, -in=our with dropped m
