learning languages and web requests [In reply to] Can't Post

Not that you said so but Sindarin is not Welsh, despite that Welsh is a Primary World influence on Sindarin (nor Finnish Quenya).

But anyway I think it would be much easier, when translating a single name for a tattoo, to simply ask those who might know a thing or two about Sindarin rather than learn an entire language that only influenced Sindarin.

That said, when one goes on the web, if the person asking knows nothing about Sindarin then how does he or she know that the person answering knows enough about Sindarin to get things accurate for a tattoo? Well, for example, two or three people seemingly agreeing on some form, with a quote or two, might instill confidence...

... but even then it could be a week or more later where someone posts that the words already suggested were really 'Noldorin' and that a late text concerning Sindarin has a different word or words... but the ink has possibly dried by then, or the person asking has left the forum by then, never to return.

Of course being too careful might mean that you never tattoo anything, for fear of not knowing what you don't know... still, in some instances [speaking generally now] I find the seeming trust put in 'someone on the web' to be a bit too easy.

Or so I ramble... as some person on the web Wink
