Just Arrived: Now I get it.


I don't. Is there a reason why subby didn't write Dwarvish?

It's not Shakespeare, so you won't get the full impact of it in Klingon.

Pfffff, call me when the Jive version gets published.

UPDATE: Readers have discovered that these papers are not in actual Elvish or Dwarvish, but instead in silly fonts designed to look like those languages. We are a little disappointed.

Neither.  To quote from io9:

I guess the writers at io9 didn't realize they couldn't read those languages.

I was wondering how he managed Dwarvish, since there's not enough of it's vocabulary to reconstruct a workable language.

A shame he didn't really do one of the Eldar tongues though.  There probably _is_ enough Noldoran or Sindarin to actually work it out.

Isn't there only about one sentence in Dwarvish? Elvish is easy, but Dwarvish isn't there.
