We are the fighting Uruk-Hai! We slew the great warrior! Well, yeah, first he killed a bunch of us and another whole lot of Mauhúr's lads, and we had to shoot enough arrows into him to drop a Mûmak. But we got him!

Neo-sindarin? [In reply to] Can't Post

I wouldn't have thought that Tolkien developed the Sindarin language to the point where a complete translation of The Bible would be possible. I hope the Pastor Keller isn't expecting any converts; many of the Elves have actually met their gods and know precisely where they dwell.

At publishing time, Keller had locked himself in his study yet again to begin work on his translation of the New Testament into the Dwarven tongue of Khuzdul.
