Common Phrases in Sindarin
Sindarin is technically not a functional language, there are so many words missing. Simple words are just simply non-existant. But there is some help for the language, it's a beautiful, poetic, and its in Lord of the Rings for goodness sake.
If there are any phrases that you would like to see me translate, feel free to contact me and I will add them to the list.
So you may want to review this page many times after seeing it for the first time.

Formal: lín ; informal: -ch
Formal: -l (obscure) pl: -dh ; informal: -g ; pl: -ch

Her skin is the color of the moon, her hair is like rivers of fire, and her eyes are sharp shards of ice. She lives in Mirkwood; she knows its secrets, its paths, and its horrors. That is why Gandalf chose her, chose her to lead the dwarves through that cursed forest. But Ithildae is far from human, the black blood of an Orc flows through her veins.

Clawed stone carvings covered the walls, their patterns clinging to the faint memories of the ones that once walked the halls. The ceilings were high and arched with grand Dwarven architecture, ancient and worn from countless years of feral life. Moria was truly a marvel. But the squeals and arguments of young Orcs

"I am watching," he whispered in a tone that made it quite clear that he thought this most obvious.
"That I can see," Belegorn said matter-of-factly. "What are you watching?"
Legolas rolled his eyes in mild exasperation and pointed down the passageway to his mother, who had just emerged from a chamber beside her own. He ducked a little to allow Belegorn to peek past him.
"What is it I should see?" Belegorn inquired, staring intently. Legolas rolled his eyes, again, and added a sigh for emphasis.
"There!" he hissed softly and pointed more insistently. "No one ever goes in there, but today Mother has gone in and out and in and out and in

Bilbo muffled a low groan in the leather of his rucksack – temporarily utilised as a pillow – and wriggled slightly, attempting to find a comfortable position. It was no good however, no matter which way he shifted the rock on which he lay refused to relinquish its crusade to become one with his spleen.
Sighing, Bilbo sat up and rubbed his face. The rocky terrain leading up to the Misty Mountains was so uncomfortable that virtually all of the company had decided to just power through it. The only ones capable of sleep were Bombur and Bifur, Bombur because his great size meant that he felt the insistent pressure of the stony ground far less than everyone else and Bifur because . . . well, he was Bifur.
“You’lright there Bilbo?” Bofur asked vaguely, from where he sat next to the Hobbit.
“Yeah, I’m fine.” Bilbo lied. He was reluctant to complain. There was nothing anyone could do and e

Those who mourn she helps to cope.

To Bring Them Back - CH 9The sun was rising; most of the Dwarves had passed out due to the excess consumption of beer and mead that took lieu moments ago. Only Thorin and Bilbo, who both strayed away from the camp, were awake. They observed as the first sun rays pierced from behind the treetops and lessened the black that once pervaded the sky. They were very quiet yet comfortable in each other's presence; however, there were still matters that needed to be discussed.To Bring Them Back - CH 92 years ago in Drama More Like This
Thorin was the first one to make a move; he shifted closer to the hobbit and placed his hand gently over Bilbo's. The latter smiled and responded to the gesture by intertwining his fingers with his King's. Then there was more silence until Thorin built the nerve to actually speak, "Halfling…" he said slowly but nervously, "I would like to thank you…for what you did for my nephews and I. When we parted in that different past, although I may have apologized for my actions, the conditions weren't necessarily positive. I never knew your

Feanor: will bond with Nerdanel to produce Seven Sons of Feanor. Will form a +3 cation in the presence of a Melkor, even though this creates a very unstable atom. In its cation state, a Feanor can induce a dipole in most Elf molecules and elements, causing instability, which is particularly pronounced in the Sons of Feanor molecules. Unlike other elements, a Feanor +3 will experience an increase in its electronegativity and attempt to wrest electrons away from other elements. If it attempts to does this with a Morgoth -3 or a Gothmog, the Feanor will explode in a shower of subatomic particles and scatter itself over a wide area.
Nerdanel: will bond with a Feanor to produce the Seven Sons of Feanor molecules. The Nerdanel molecule itself is usually found bonded to a Mahtan or Feanor element, or by itself far away from other Noldorian elements.
Maedhros: non-polar molecule made up of Nerdanel and Feanor elements with a higher number of Nerdanels. May bond with a Fing

There were a great many things which, although they seemed quite natural to the dwarves, initially mystified the little Hobbit. Their method of greeting each other by smashing their skulls together was only the first incident in which he became aware of their unfamiliar customs. He quickly discovered more over the next few days of travelling and, in the privacy of his head; he wryly conceded that Gandalf had been right. The world was most certainly not in his books. To be entirely truthful, he learned more about the peoples of Middle Earth from one talk with the well-educated and surprisingly chatty Dori, than he had done in his entire life up until that point.
Needless to say, Dwalin’s nipple-ring had been a major eye-opener and even now the company liked to do impressions of Bilbo’s squeak of surprise upon noticing it. Bifur’s injury too had alarmed him, although in truth the axe firmly lodged in his

I awoke for the third or maybe even sixth time for that day. I was becoming increasingly tired as the day stretched on. I found myself falling asleep regularly against Thorin, his arm around me the only thing keeping me from falling off of the pony.
“Would you like some water, Bilbo?” Thorin asked quietly as I adjusted in my seat, he stopped my hand before it could rub at the bandages that started to itch.
“I’m okay.” Why was my mind so fogged up?
Keep awake! My mind hissed with a savagely dark memory. I jerked at the sudden sound of skin slapping skin with a vicious hit. It was a memory, the sou
It Has Been SaidThorin was on his deathbed and everyone knew it. The silence in the camp was absolute, and it was strange to hear when just before the battle it had been full of song and cheer. Everyone came and went from the room in which he lay, staring sadly at the injured king and trying their best not to cry.It Has Been Said2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But there was one creature who would not leave his side no matter what. That creature was Bilbo Baggins. He would never admit it but ever since Thorin had embraced him on the mountain peak his feelings toward the leader had taken a turn for (in Bilbo's opinion) the worse. He hadn't been able to stop thinking about the dwarf for a single second during the journey. When the company had been imprisoned by the wood elves, Bilbo had spent a lot of his time sitting, invisible, outside Thorin's cell and listening to him sing. His voice was deep and soothing, and had actually helped Bilbo to calm down and think. If not for that voice, he was positive that the company would still be locked in the elv

A King's Blessing (Bagginshield - Hobbit fanfic)As Thorin and Bilbo walked together through the great hall leading eventually to the Throne Room, a young Dwarf woman with a baby in her arms and a small child by the hand ran towards them. She stopped in front of Thorin, taking a long bow, then came up to him asking for what Bilbo interpreted as a blessing for her new baby. The first born in Erebor since its relative restoration. Very gallantly, Thorin approached her and bent over the little bundle. He smiled and caressed the baby’s cheek, whispering something in Khuzdul. As well as Bilbo could hear, it was a wish of long life and prosperity.A King's Blessing (Bagginshield - Hobbit fanfic)1 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
“What will you name him?” asked Thorin, stepping back at Bilbo’s side, after completing his kingly duty.
“If we may, Your Majesty, we want to name him Frerin, in honour of your brother.”
“An excellent choice,” approved Thorin, then glanced down at the baby’s older sibling, who was staring at him mesmerized. “And who are you?”
Most TreasuredBilbo wasn’t sure what would happen when Thorin found out what he'd done. He was hoping – hoping desperately – that the King under the Mountain would at least listen to his reasoning for his actions. If not, then, well, there wouldn’t be much left of him. Thorin, when truly enraged, was even fiercer than Smaug.Most Treasured2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
But Bilbo could not bear to see the ferocious lust for life in the eyes of Durin’s heir fade any further. He could not bear to watch idly as gold sickness destroyed everything Thorin and Company had worked and fought so hard for.
So he had taken the Arkenstone he had so carefully hidden from the dwarves and given it away.
The words he had spoken upon revealing the stone to Bard and Thranduil were true, but the truth of them ripped at his heart.
“This is the Arkenstone of Thrain, the Heart of the Mountain,” he had said, holding it up for their inspection, “And it is also the heart of Thorin. He values it above a river of g

How One Hobbit Defeated Five Armies of StupidityThe story of how Bilbo Baggins saved the lives of his dwarven companions throughout his journey to the Lonely Mountain was one Gandalf the Grey never tired of telling, particularly the part at the end with the Arkenstone. Bilbo thought the tale was quite overrated and overdone, finding the wizard’s way of turning a phrase to be silly and mocking instead of sincere. In his own eyes Bilbo hadn’t done anything spectacular or amazing; he had simply decided that no one was going to die as a result of Thorin Oakenshield’s daft plan to reclaim his home and then put every ounce of his energy into making that decision a reality. For the most part the little hobbit had his work cut out for him, because the dwarves were a hearty race who did not take to injury lightly. It wasn’t until they had reached the Lonely Mountain and the dragon was slain did the real challenge to his task rear its ugly head.How One Hobbit Defeated Five Armies of Stupidity1 year ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

- It is not my wife about whom I am worried, Ra… it is myself.
The falcon headed god with bright green eyes, golden jewelry, combat ankh and a miniature Sun hovering above his head, burst out in laughter, his entire body shaking with it. His only companion, a strange animal headed warrior in red armor, with ruby red eyes and dark grey skin that was neither reptile nor mammal but rather in between, glared at him silently.
- What is so funny?! – he snapped finally.
