Arvyndase (Silverspeech): The Language of the Silver Elves

Chapter 1

1. Tae (the)

This is intended as a short course in the elfin language Arvyndase (literally SilverSpeech, pronounced Air – vin – dah – see, the language of the Silver Elves). It will use word substitutions to teach one to read the language. A list of words already used in the text, which one can reference, will be accessible here .

The first word we will explore is the article Tae, which is the Arvyndase word for "the". From now forward, tae will be substituted for the word “the” for tae rest of this course. Tae is pronounced tay, rhymes with say.

Arvyndase is a very vowel oriented language. Vowels are almost always pronounced independently of each other. An exception to this is tae “ae” at tae end of a word. Arvyndase has three forms of tae vowel “a”. Written as an “a”, it is a long a, that is it sounds like the name of tae vowel when spoken, as in tae word, say, play, bay, etc. An “a” with a dot over it, sounds like tae “a” in ah, dah, bah, etc. An “a” with two dots, side by side over it, is pronounced like tae “a” in at, bat, fat, etc. However, an “a” at tae end of a word without a dot is always pronounced as tae singled dotted a, that is as in ah, pa, ma, and so forth.
On tae other hand, an “a” followed by an “e” at tae end of a word is pronounced as a long, or undotted “a”. If an ae is found anywhere else in tae word, the vowels are pronounced separately.

It should be noted as well that an “a” after tae letter “c”, even without a dot over the letter “a”, is always pronounced as a single dotted “a”, thus it sounds like cah, while an “a” after a “k” is nearly always a long “a”, thus kay, unless otherwise noted.


2. Na (a and an)

Tae English language has two definite articles “a” and “an” that are represented in Arvyndase by na (pronounced nah). In English, “a” is used before a word that begins with a consonant and “an” is used before words that begin with a vowel. There are a few minor exceptions to this rule, tae rule really being that “a” is used before words that have the sound of consonants and “an” is used before words that sound like vowels. These exceptions occur so seldom that they usually go unconsidered. From now forth, we will use tae Arvyndase word na in place of “a” and “an”.

Zardoa Silverstar Love of tae Silver Elves created Arvyndase over na ten-year period in tae 1990’s. He created tae language both for tae fun of it, and also because, while he very much liked Tolkien’s elfin languages of Sindarin and Quendi, they didn’t contain enough words to satisfy his need for using them in his magic. Currently, Arvyndase contains over 31,000 word entries, although that often includes word suffixes and prefixes. Therefore tae Arvyndase dictionary will contain tae words for create, creation, and created, etc. He did this by going through na 800 page paperback dictionary of English and creating Arvyn words on three by five cards that he kept in cross referenced metal file boxes: Arvyndase to English and English to Arvyndase. Eventually, when he had completed tae bulk of tae language, he entered it into na Excel spread sheet that can very quickly go from Arvyndase to English or English to Arvyn.


3. Nar (and)

Tae conjunction “and” is used in tae English language to connect nouns, verbs and parts of sentences. Tae Arvyndase word for “and” is nar (pronounced nair, rhymes with fair) and will be used henceforth in this course. Like in English, “nar” can be used to connect nouns, such as: na elf, na dwarf, nar na pixie. Or verbs, as in: she both ran nar walked to the store. Or clauses, such as: tae elf went to tae store, nar to tae post office.

As we explained previously, Zardoa created Arvyndase just for tae fun of it, tae challenge of such na extensive project, nar to have na magical language that we could use with our spell work. Although, he created it primarily in tae1990’s, he had first attempted to create na elfin language in tae mid-1970’s, however, tae sheer immensity of creating that many words overwhelmed him nar his elf sister nar assistant on tae language at that time, Morning Moonstar, that they abandoned tae project before they got halfway through the “a’s”. It wasn’t until tae 1990’s that he felt ready to take on tae project again, nar this time committed hims’elf to completing it, this time with assistance nar encouragement from his soul/spirit mate, Silver Flame.


4. Sa (or)

Or is used in English as na function word, or conjunction that offers na alternative between nouns, verbs, or parts of speech: do you want ham or chicken, would you like to walk or take tae car, etc. Sa (pronounced sah) is tae Arvyndase word for “or” nar will be substituted henceforth in this course.

When we say that Zardoa created Arvyndase, we are equally satisfied nar open to tae idea that he remembered, nar/sa channeled it. So much of tae elfin culture has been lost sa erased through tae course of time, nar tae influx of dominant sa more dominating cultures that most of our culture comes from fiction nar Fairy Tales, many of which are pure nonsense. So we have only our own feelings, sa our own instincts, nar perhaps what Jung would call our Collective Elfin Consciousness to guide us about what is true sa false, although this might also be what is true for some of us, but false for others. Thus tae more one awakens to their elfin nature, tae more one must rely upon their inner sense of what is true of them, individual, nar true for elves overall.


5. Kana (but)

Tae Arvyndase word for “but” is kana (pronounced kay – nah).
Because most of modern Elfae (elf and faerie kind) were not raised among those who knew themselves to be elves, we must use, as explained previously, our instincts nar feelings to decipher what it means to be na elf; kana that should not be taken as na sign that we elves are na illogical people. In fact, in most cases, we are probably tae most reasonable nar logical folk on tae planet. We are na deeply feeling people, nar na extremely logical folk, kana we do tend to be far less emotional than most people. We elves make na distinction between feelings nar emotion, unlike tae majority of people who seem to think they are tae same thing. Feeling being na deep inner sense of being, emotion to us is, on the contrary, feeling aroused nar/sa affected by thoughts nar ideas.

Thus, while we use our feelings to guide us to what is true about being elfin, we also use our logical abilities to “separate tae wheat from tae chaff”. This is particularly important since most of us have been raised in normal society, nar by individuals who were normal, sa endeavoring very hard to appear so.


6. Practice: tae (the), na (a and an), nar (and), sa (or), kana (but).

Silver Flame suggested that we give tae reader na chance to practice tae words given so far about every fifth word sa so, therefore here are na few elf sayings with which to practice.
It is said that one nar one equals two, kana tae elves say one nar one can equal three, sa four, sa even more depending on how fertile tae first ones are.

If we could we, elves would run naked through tae streets (nar na few pixies do), kana we love to dress up too much to do so.

When people ask us to make either-sa decisions, we elves often asked, “Kana why can’t we have both?”

Tae Way to Elfin is easy to find for those with na kind heart nar na open mind. These need look no farther than their mirror kana those with closed minds will not find Elfin, nar those with unkind hearts will wish they hadn’t.

Tae elves are of tae opinion that in kana na few cases, tae path one chooses is tae right choice for them at tae time, nar tae place one winds up is kana na way station on na never ending journey. For life is na peregrination of learning nar awakening, nar tae goal is not to end up some place, kana to never cease exploring on tae Road of Becoming.


7. Da (is/are), Dain (was/were)

Tae Arvyndase word for “ is” is da (pronounced dah). It da also tae word for “are”. So we would say both he da going to tae store, nar they da going to tae store. The past tense of “da” da formed by adding “ in”, which da tae Arvyndase equivalent of tae English “ed”. This da pronounced dah – in, nar tae “ I” in “ in” da pronounced as though it had two dots over it, although that da assumed nar not written as tae “a” at tae end of Arvyndase words act as though they have na dot over them, although none da shown.

So “dain” da like saying “ ised” sa “ared” in English, which makes no sense in that language, kana makes perfect sense in Arvyndase. In English, however, you have words like depart nar departed, sa turn nar turned, sort nar sorted. This “ in” da also used as tae “ed” in words like wood nar wooded, beard nar bearded, near nar neared, nar can be added to nearly any Arvyndase word to create past tense.

We know, this da na complicated lesson, nar some may wish to reread it several times, however, it really demonstrates that in many ways, Arvyndase da na simpler language to learn nar use.


8. Ter (it) Ter’na (its)

Tae Arvyndase word for “ it” da ter (pronounced tier or tear, as in cry). Ter da na third person singular pronoun. Ter should be noted that some languages, for instance Japanese, do not have na word for “ it”. Arvyndase, being channeled, sa created, sa remembered by na English speaker resembles English in syntax (tae arrangement of words in tae sentence), parts of speech, etc., kana ter could also be translated into other languages sa used by non-English speakers, in which case ter would take on tae syntax nar sentence formation of that language. So too, in English one says, tae red house, nar in other languages one say tae house red, na Arvyndase speaker would arrange tae language in tae form for different elves according to their native tongue.

One might think that this would create problems for Arvyndase speakers from different language backgrounds, kana such na challenge should be easy for elves to overcome since we da like two people who da madly in love kana don’t speak tae same language. We find ways to make ours’elves understood. Its (ter’na sa ter-na (pronounced tier - nah)) simply na matter of our intense desire to unite.

You will note that tae suffix ‘” ’na” sa “–na” added to any word in Arvyndase creates what in English would be tae possessive “ ’s”, as in John’s house, Linda’s shoe sa love’s sweet tears, etc. Tae English “it’s” (it is) would be “ter da” in Arvyndase nar has no contraction.


9. Ver (in)

Tae English preposition “in” will be replaced by tae Arvyndase word “ver” (pronounced veer) henceforth. Kana, ter should be noted that ter da not tae same word used ver Arvyndase as a prefix when one says, for instance, something da “inexpressible” sa “inadequate”. We will get to that form of “in” ver tae future.

Ver tae course of time, with na basic grasp of tae articles, prepositions, nar other common parts of speech, as well as na grasp of tae prefixes nar suffixes, nar na basic Arvyndase dictionary, you will be na very proficient writer, reader, nar speaker of this language.
People often ask us, on hearing that we’ve created, nar/sa remembered, nar/sa channeled this elfin language, if we speak ter ours’elves, nar alas, we do not. Kana, as we proceed ver creating this course we, too, da becoming more nar more adept ver its usage.


10. Va (to)

Tae preposition “to” in Arvyndase da expressed by tae word “va” (pronounced vah), which will replace “to” henceforth ver this course. Ter da said that one’s language deeply affects tae way one views tae world nar tae Universe. So ter da that as one learns nar uses Arvyndase, one moves ever deeper into Elfin. This occurs due va tae fact that Elfin springs forth not so much from na outer dimension, as from na inner one. Tae more one surrounds thems’elves with, nar lives their life as, na elf, tae more elfin they become nar tae more elfin, tae dimensional vibration that da Faerie, surrounds them, radiates from them, nar leads them ever deeper va their true nature, which da elfin.

Some might think Elfin exists without elf sa faery kind, kana when have you ever read na story where tae characters went va na wide place nar thought ter da Faerie without elves sa faeries appearing? Elfin/Faerie stems from tae being of elfin/faerie folk. Ter da not Faerie that creates elves, kana elves that create Faerie. Still, there da no question that Faerie exists ver potential, awaiting tae elves and fair folk va bring ter va life.


11.An (from), ter’na (its)

Tae Arvyndase word for “from” da “an” (pronounced ain, as in train, pain, main, etc. rhymes with sane, Dane, mane, crane, nar so forth). We realize that this can be na bit confusing since “an” da spelled tae same as tae English article “an”, kana ter’na use ver tae sentence will help distinguish ter an ter’na English Homograph.

Once again, we know we da giving you na lot va deal with ver this lesson, nar ter might take several readings for some students, such as these elves, va grasp. We suggest that, if you have not already, you create na file, sa na notepad, containing tae words we’ve covered thus far for easy reference as you proceed.

Some might ask if these elves really expect this created language va be used by elves ver tae future, nar tae answer da, yes we do. Not necessarily as na language of communication among people so much as na language of magic. An ancient times ter has been held that language used ver magical ceremonies da more effective if ter da na expression of feeling more than ideas, what tae Elf Queen’s Daughters referred va as “thought emotes”. Ter should also be pointed out that tae earliest language, an tae most ancient of time da often called Sensor va describe ter’na emotive nature. Magical languages spoken ver ritual don’t have va make sense as ideas so much as be na true expression of tae feeling of tae magician connected va nar empowering tae images sHe projects with hir magic.


12. U (of)

Tae word “u” (pronounced you) ver Arvyndase stands for tae English “of”.
We should probably note at this point that Arvyndase da na very melodious language nar has few harsh sounds ver ter. If when pronouncing tae words, they sound rough va you, then endeavor va draw out tae words as you say them. U course, ter would be best if you could hear us pronouncing tae words, nar we hope at some time va create na video with that purpose ver mind.

Ter should be remembered that tae elves da na people u harmony, nar u poetry. We da tae people u tae gentle breeze nar tae whispered words u love. Kana, ter da also true that we can be the people u tae fierce winds shaking tae trees nar warning one u powerful magics ver tae making.


13. Practice 2
One u tae things we find helpful da va read ver English (sa whatever language you use) nar translate into Arvyndase as we read along. We also find ter helpful sometimes va read these lessons nar translate tae Arvyndase parts into English as we read along. Whatever works for you da best.

As elves use Arvyndase, we expect they will adapt ter va their own needs, adding words that might be absent an tae dictionary, nar adjusting tae language ver tae way that works best for them. This da va be expect. Na language that does not change da not na living language. We da giving birth va this language, kana ter da others who will carry on ter’na life. If large numbers u elves took up tae language, ter would develop dialects, nar va time separate into several languages. That da va be expected. There da no right way sa wrong way va use this language. No experts va say what da right sa wrong. However, if you wish va communicate with others, you will have va agree on certain accepted usages among you for clarity. So ter da, so ter shall be. Our love nar blessings da ever with you.


14. Te (be) Tedas (being – verb nar noun)

Tae Arvyndase word for tae English verb “be” da “te” (pronounced tea).
Learning va use this language da as easy as ter da va te na elf. One simply has va persist ver tedas (pronounced tea – dace (rhymes with mace)) nar acting as na elf, every day ver every way va te na elf, nar one simply has va persist ver following this course va speak nar write Arvyndase. (Note: tae suffix “das” added va nearly any noun or verb ver Arvyndase functions like tae English “ing”.)

U course, not everyone wishes va te na elf, anymore than everyone wishes va learn this language. Kana, for those who do tae way da open nar easy nar there da nearly always elves nar others va help you on tae way, either on tae physical plane sa tae planes where tae spirits abide, which da also tae physical plane kana ver na much more subtle form.

While we can understand that those who da not elves do not wish va te elves. Tedas elves for us da tae most wondrous thing. We love tedas elves. Ter gives us great joy nar pleasure, nar da tae source u our delight nar our magic. Ver some ways we wonder how anyone could not wish va te na elf, nar yet, ver our minds if na person da who nar what they da truly meant va te, than while they may not te elves, they da elfin enough for us. For tedas one’s own s’elf, ver tae elfin mind, da va te na elf, after na fashion, va us.


15. Vek (can – verb) Tein (been)

Tae English auxiliary verb “can” da translated into Arvyndase as “vek” (pronounced veek, rhymes with seek). (Note: tae noun for “can” as ver tin can, da na different word.)

Da we having fun yet? This dain tae first thing our daughter, Elantari, ever read on her own. We had tein (pronounced tea – in) (note tae addition u tae suffix “in” va tae verb te (be) va create “been”, although tae literal translation would te “be-ed) home-schooling her, nar when on na trip va Berkeley, Ca. nar she looked up at na billboard nar read out “Da we having fun yet?”

So our question va you da, Da you having fun yet? If not, relax. Tae key va learning Arvyndase da not so much intense effort, kana relaxed practice. Enjoy your studies, nar keep reading tae lessons, nar ter will get easier nar easier. Vek this te so? U course, ter vek. Time nar consistent practice da tae key va learning all things. That nar enjoyment.

Remember tae ancient elven saying, “If you da not having fun, you da not learning anything”. Ter da only though joy that we truly learn. Pain (not va te confused with effort) makes us avoid things. Joy unites us with our learning nar da probably tae greatest lesson teachers vek learn. Vek this te true? We assure you ter da. Ter has tein demonstrated over nar over again. So relax nar enjoy tae ride, this vek te great fun.


16. Yon (will – verb nar noun)

Tae Arvyndase word for tae English word “will”, both as na noun nar na auxiliary verb, da “yon” (pronounced yone, rhymes with lone). (Note: while you could use yon for tae noun “will”, as ver last yon nar testament, there da na separate Arvyndase noun “desutra” (pronounced dee- sue – trah) for that concept, kana we yon not expect you va remember that word.)

Yon da na very important part u magic. Whether ter da used consciously sa unconsciously, as ter da sometimes, perhaps oft-times da, yon helps direct nar empower tae magic. This yon te clear va all true magicians, particularly elfin magicians. Tae idea u magic, ver’na purpose da va bring about our yon. Nar for elves that yon da directed nar empowered by our vision. Tae elfin vision da ever inclusive u na world where all may live nar love together ver harmony, where each finds fulfillment, nar every individual yon te respected nar taken care u, by all their others. Does this sound idealistic? We elves da na idealistic people. Kana while this ideal may seem fanciful va some, ter da not na impossible dream, nar ter should te remembered that we elves nar faery folk da noted for our ability, our quite magical ability, va make dreams nar wishes come true. We wish va live ver na perfect world, which for us da na elfin world, nar we yon bring ter about through our yon, our actions, our intent … our very lives. Elfin da not just na dream kana na world we yon create for all our kind nar all who yon va te among us.


17. Tat (as)

Tae English word “as” da translated into tae Arvyndase language as “tat” (pronounced tate, rhymes with fate). Tat you must realize by now, we yon substitute “tat” for “as” tat we proceed ver these lessons.

This da not tae only form u na Elfin language ver existence. There da Tolkien’s Sindarin nar Quendi, nar you yon find numerous sites on tae internet that have lists u Elven words. There da no problem, tat far tat these elves da concerned with interposing words an these other elfin languages with this one. U course, one would need va do this with others who share one’s knowledge u those words sa language. Nar, there would te no difficulty, again tat far tat these elves da concerned, with mixing several languages together, again with tae practical proviso that all tae communicators share access va all tae dictionaries involved. Just tat English incorporates words an Middle English nar ter’na ancestors, French through tae Norman invaders, Latin an tae Romans, Greek, primarily an tae scientific community, nar these days, also words an Japanese (such tat sushi), nar other languages.

This could cause some confusion if there da words that da spelled tae same from different languages, kana that da also tae case ver English, nar we expect that some form u notation yon te created that yon signify words an different languages. Although, most often such conflicts da overcome by tae position (thus meaning) u tae word ver tae sentence.


18. La (by) Nolorda (by the way)

Tae Arvyndase word for tae English word “by” da “la” (pronounced lah).
Tat we dain saying ver tae previous lesson, this language da meant va te adapted la ter’na users. U course, tat we pointed out, ter da important for those who use ter together va agree on any changes, additions, sa modifications they make. This da not necessarily tae case for ceremonial magicians who may, here nar there, find ter necessary va add na word sa two, tat required for their workings. Still, this da na language with thousands u words, nar we expect few additions va te needed ver most cases. Ver other words, if you don’t find tae word you need ver our dictionary, make one up, channel ter, sa remember ter, tat we did.

La tae way, there da actually na Arvyndase word that means “by the way” , ter da “nolorda” (pronounced no – lore – dah), kana ter da perfectly acceptable va use tae individual Arvyndase words tat we did at tae beginning u this paragraph. Tat you vek see, we da na easy people va please. Easy-going nar, ver many ways, just plain easy.


19. ton (on) gos (on)

There da two Arvyndase words for tae English word “on”. Tae first da “ton” (pronounced tone) that da used ver tae sense u “let’s get ton tae train” nar bears tae idea that tedas “on” top u something. Tae other Arvyndase word for “on” da “gos” (pronounced go-ss, sound like ghost sa toast without tae “t”) nar ter da used va designate “on” ver tae sense of movement sa going forward, such tat “Let’s get gos down tae road” “let’s get gos that project nar get ter done”. We realize this da na bit confusing nar if you should use one word ver tae place u tae other, ter da no big deal.

Nolorda, we realize ter vek te difficult va decide which “on” va use, gos sa ton. Kana, generally speaking, if something da not physically sa metaphorically ton something, gos da tae appropriate word. Tat ver, “’Let’s get gos with ter”. Any sentence that signifies, movement, sa usage, yon te “gos”. Ton tae other hand, “ton” da appropriate ver, “Put ter ton tae table”. Kana da ter, “Call me gos tae phone” sa “Call me ton tae phone”? Either works for us. Here da some more examples: “An [from] now gos”, “Come ton Tuesday”, “They just talk gos nar gos”, “What da they going gos about?”, nar so gos. Use your best judgment nar we da sure you yon get gos fine with this lesson. Next time, gos va other words.


20. rep (up) repton (upon)

Tae Arvyndase word for “up” da “rep” (pronounced reap”. Note that tae word for “upon”, tat ter da ver English da composed la combining “rep” (up) nar “ton” (on) thus, repton (upon, pronounced reap-tone).

Once repton na time, tat nearly every faery tale begins, there dain these two elves who tried va use Tolkien’s elf languages nar thought, wouldn’t ter te nice if he had some articles nar preposition, etc. va make tae use u tae language more accessible, tat well tat, na lot more nouns nar verbs. Tat stated earlier ver these lessons, they did not continued with their efforts, kana Zardoa did eventually do so.

Ver tae 1990’s Zardoa also began giving out elf names through tae internet, nar these names each have na meaning, so ver addition va tae words ver tae Arvyndase dictionary, there da, tat this point, rep va nearly 5,500 names, which vek each te used tat na Arvyndase word. These words would te used ver tae same way tat one would say, “That guy da na Benedict Arnold” sa, “He da na regular Rembrandt”, etc.


21. Practice 3

They say… dear kindred… that tae way va Elfin/Faerie da within. This da true, kana ter da also true that la using Arvyndase sa other elfin languages sa using na elfin name, one begins va manifest Elfin here ton Earth, va bring ter va life la living tat na elf. An [from] tae first time one uses Elfin, ver whatever form, one awakens tae attention u tae spirits u Faerie nar they da drawn va one tat elves da va music nar dance. Tat we move gos with these lessons nar one uses tae language more nar more, tae fair folk yon notice nar ever more magic yon awaken around one.

Rep till now, we have not spoken much u tae philosophy u we elves, kana tat we go gos, we yon speak ever more u these things. Tat one begins va absorb these ideas nar ideals nar these thought-emotes one yon find, tat though la magic, which u course ter da, that coincidences nar synchronicities yon increase ver one’s life. Nar this much da guaranteed, if one calls out va Elfin, Elfin yon respond. Ter vek te na bit disconcerting at first, for many da immediately caught between tae parameters u tae world they knew nar tae ever expanding nar evolving borders u Faerie. There da one thing one vek count repton: we yon, ver tat much tat ter da ver our power, always te here va help you, tat, ver fact, we have ever tein.


22. mol (word) molli (words) oso (the final word or directive)

How about na few nouns? Tae word ver tae Arvyndase language for “word” da “mol” (pronounced mole). There da also na mol that means tae “last mol” sa tae “final mol” ton na subject, nar that mol da “oso” (pronounced oh – so). This would te tae mol used ver popular slang when one says “word” meaning, “that da tae truth” sa “truth”, thus elfin “gangstas”, if there dain any would say, “Oso”. This would also te tae case if someone asked, “Did you hear about Evandra? Tae oso da she’s fallen ver kyela (love)”.

Va make mol pural, thus “words”, one would add tae suffix “li” (pronounced lie). This suffix da tae Arvyndase form u tae English pural suffixes u “-s’, “-es”, “-ies” nar vek te added va any noun ver Arvyndase va create na pural form u that mol. Ter vek also te added va verbs va create tae pural form. Kana, ter should te noted that this da not tae case where “-s” da added ver English va na verb va signify ter’na use ver relationship va na singular pronouns. This form ver Arvyndase da signified la tae suffix “-lu” (pronounced loo, rhymes with who).
Tat na example let’s take tae Arvyndase mol “kyela” (pronounced key – L – lah), one u several molli ver Arvyndase for tae English mol “love”. We might say, “that elf has three kyelali (key – l – lah – lie): music, dance, nar romance”. This would te different than saying, “that elf kyelalu (key – L – lah – loo) va dance, play music, nar romance”.

Nar so you have your molli for tae day.


23. elto (language)

Tae Arvyndase mol for “language” da “elto” (pronounced eel – toe). La adding tae suffix “-li” ter becomes “languages” sa “eltoli) (eel – toe – lie). Ter has tein said that our elto affects tae way we view tae world. We elves would suggest that tae way we view tae world also affects our elto. For instance, tae Eskimos da known va have numerous molli for different types u snow, since their life experience nar world da filled with snow. So tae Arvyndase elto has numerous words for love, nar tae various forms ter appears as. There da rynt (pronounced rent) that da tae mol that da used va speak u “love” ver general, nar all ter’na forms. There da kyela, which da rynt “love” ver na romantic nar affectionate way, nar “feln” (sounds like feel with na “n” added va tae end nar merged with tae sound), which represents tae special feeling that elves feel for other elves. There da feas (fee – ace) that indicates rynt used ver tae sense u “like” nar da usually used with na feasdas (loving – liking) for objects, tat ver “I feas my car”.

There da also jalar (pronounced jah – lair, there should te na dot over tae first “a” kana we don’t have na way u reproducing that here), which indicates na Divine feeling u rynt. Nar there da ford (pronounced ford) ver tae Arvyndase elto that denotes rynt ver tae sense u tae ford one has for their soulmate sa family. We do not expect you va remember all these forms u rynt kana we present them here for those who da interested.


24. elda (elf)

Tae mol ver tae Arvyndase elto for “elf” da “elda” (pronounced L – dah). Ter has na dot ton tae “e” that we da unable va reproduce here. We could print ter tat e’lda sa e*lda, kana that seems cumbersome va us nar so we will depend ton your understanding u tae pronunciation va comprehend where tae accent marks belong. If you add tae suffix “-li” ter becomes eldali (elves) (pronounced l – dah – li with na dot repton tae “a” tat well tat tae “e”).

La adding various suffixes tae mol da transformed va ter’na various forms. La adding tae suffix “-tur” (hood) ter forms tae mol eldatur (elfhood) (pronounced L – dah – tour). If you add tae suffix “-ta” (-en) ter transforms to “eldata” (elven) (pronounced L – day –tah, notice that ver this case tae first “a” does not have na dot ton ter). Na variation u this da “elfin” , which da spelled eldat (L – date). La adding tae suffix “-tu” (-ish) ter transforms verva eldatu (elfish) (pronounced L – day – two) nar by adding tae suffix “-dar” (-ness) va that we get eldatudar (elfishness) (pronounced L – day – two – dare).

You may wish va make note u these suffixes tat they vek te added va any noun va form variations ton tae words.

25. fro (for)

Tae Arvyndase mol for “for” da “fro”. Fro tae eldali, all things have va do with magic. Tae world da na magical place nar all that we do nar say nar experience da born u magic. Thus Arvyndase da na magical elto, kana then all eltoli da magical fro tae eldata (elven). What da special about eldata eltoli da that they specifically evoke eldat (elfin) nar faerie magic. Reading these molli brings elfata magic verva your life nar if you read them out loud, that da send tae vibrations verva tae air, they yon call tae spirits nar Spirit u Faerie va you. If you use this elto, your life yon change, fro tae magic u Eldat (Elfin) yon te attracted va you tat eldali da va pizza.

Tae nice thing about eldata (elven) magic, however, da that ter da relatively beneficent va tae beneficent. If you da na good person, you have nothing va fear an (from) tae fair folk. However, eldali do not much care fro assholes nar they don’t do well around us, nar when they come ver contact with our magic, they tend va regret ter. Not because u anything we do, kana because eldat (elfin) magic) tends va balance things out. Running verva tae eldali da like encountering one’s own karma. If your karma da good, then all yon te well, if not … . Va proceed with these lessons da va call tae magic va you. Ter da like asking “God” va take na close look at your life. Ter da rep va you.


26. ena (with)

Tae mol fro “with” ver tae Arvyndase elto da “ena” (pronounced e – nah). This mol ena tae mol “ter” (it) could te used va indicate that someone dain, tat tae slang expression goes, “with it”, sa ena ter. Kana, there da another mol ver Arvyndase that vek te used va mean tae same thing, nar that mol da “inton” (pronounced in – tone, tae “ I” has two parallel dots repton ter). Thus ter could te said, “Tae eldali da very inton”.

Ena tae use u Arvyndase, your luck yon increase, nar great blessings yon come verva your life. Synchronicities nar lucky co-incidences yon be more nar more frequent, nar your magic yon get ever stronger. You yon discover that when you go fro na walk, you yon te walking ena tae spirits u Eldat (Elfin), fro they yon te ever more attracted va you nar yon wish va go ena you everywhere. Hope you like company.


27. kon (not – no) enakon (without)

Tae Arvyndase mol fro “not” da “kon” (pronounced cone). Ter da also tae mol fro tae English mol “no”. Tae mol fro “without” da form la (by) combining tae molli “ena” nar “kon”, thus “enakon” (pronounced e – nah – cone), kana this means “without” ter could te literally translated tat “with not), tat ver: enakon na doubt.

Ter should te noted that tae mol “kon” also functions tat na prefix ver many instances ver Arvyndase nar vek te added va any noun ver tae elto (language) where tae idea da that ter da kon that. Kon serves tat tae prefix “ in-” ver instances where “ in-“ indicates “not” sa “kon”. Such tat konrego (pronounced cone – ree – go) which means “inconstant” sa konyendur (pronounced cone plus yen which rhymes with mean plus dur which sounds like doer) that means “ incorrect”. Ter also da used tat tae prefix “ il-” tat ver konmanetarey (cone – may – knee – tah – ray) (illiterate) nar kongrijvar (cone – gryj (sounds like cry with a “j” – var (rhymes with care). Ter da similarly used tat tae prefix “ ig-“ tat ver koneldae (cone – L – day) (ignoble), nar tat tae prefix “ im-” tat ver konnalur (cone – nah – lure) (immature) sa konkomyr (cone – co – mer) (immobile).

While ter yon kon te used ver these writings ter should te pointed out that one u our favorite molli nar one we eldali use very often da ale (a – lee) which da “yes”. Ale?


28. hern (thus)

Tae Arvyndase mol fro “thus” da “hern” (pronounced hear-n, so hear ena (with) tae “n” merged ton tae end nar kon as na separate sound. Hern if you dain writing na Haiku ver Arvyndase, which da composed u 3 lines, tae first ena 5 syllables, tae second ena 7, nar tae third ena 5, tae mol “hern” would te kana one syllable.)

Ter da said that societies tend va te either individualistic, such tat tae United States, sa collectivistic, tat fro instance, China nar Japan. Eldata (elven) society, however, tends va te na collectivist individualistic society, hern na society that exists fro tae benefit u tae individuals enaver (within) ter. Kana, unlike totalitarian societies, ter da kon organized just fro one individual, sa na small group u individuals, kana fro all tae individuals enaver tae society. Kon just fro tae rich, konsa (nor, composed u kon [not] nar sa [or]) fro tae smartest, most aggressive, most beautiful, sa tae most successful, kana fro all ter’na members. Eldat (elfin) society da hern like na family. Kon na dysfunctional family that da presented tat tae norm these day, kana na truly loving family where tae needs u all ter’na members get what they need nar contribute what they can.


29. re (so)

Tae mol ver Arvyndase fro “so” da “re” (pronounced ree). Ter should te noted that there da other molli used ver Arvyndase fro expressions that appear ver English. Fro instance, tae English expression “so-so”, tat ver that meal dain just so-so”, ver tae Arvyndase elto would used tae mol “nata” (pronounced nay – tah), which means “so-so”. Tat always, you could simply use tae Arvyndase equivalents, re you could say, “That meal dain re-re”, kana tae proper form would be “nata”.

Also, note tae molli vakorn (pronounced vay – corn) that means “so called” , nar dilno (pronounced dial – no) that means “so far”. Do you understand dilno? And there da atentyl (pronounced a – teen – till), which means “so long as”, tat ver “atentyl you continue va study this elto, you yon learn ter enakon fail”. There da also valla (pronounced veil – lah), which means “so long”, tat ver “we’re going now, valla”. We do kon expect you va remember all these molli nar yon give you reminders ver parenthesis when we use them. Ale?


30. Practice 4

We eldat (elfin) seek va treat all others, eldata (elven) sa otherwise, tat equals. This vek te observed ver tae fact that ver Arvyndase tae names u places nar individuals da simply tae name they have chosen fro themselves spell ver Arvyndase linguistics. Hern, English da spelled Englysh (with na dot repton tae “e’) ver Arvyndase, Germany da spelled Jyrmyne (since tae “g” almost always has na hard “g” sound, tat ver tae Englysh mol “gargle”). Japan would te spelled ena na single dot repton tae first “a” nar two parallel dots repton tae second “a”. Although, since they call their country Nipon, we would tend va call ter that nar spell ter Nepon.

This da true u names tat well. We have na policy that people vek call us whatever they wish va call us, nar we yon ver turn call them what we wish va call them (usually much va their regret), sa they vek address us tat we wished va te called nar we yon call them whatever they wish va te called. Since, we tend va approach all people tat equals, we use titles ena those who declare themselves titled, first names ena those who offer us their first names, nar re forth.

Some might wonder why we hern call tae “normals”, normals. Some think we seek va insult them, kana ver fact, we call them normals because they call themselves normal, nar only eldali nar our others, think tae description “normal” da na insult.
Nolorda (by the way), we also apply Arvyndase spelling va individuals names. Hern tae great eldata (elven) philosopher Timothy Leary da call Tymythe Lere, nar tae great eldat (elfin) explore Terence McKenna yon have his name written tat Teryns (dot repton tae “e”) Mykyna. Nar that da tae oso.

 

 

Chapter 2

1. tir (have – has) tiring (had)

How about another verb? Tae Arvyndase mol fro “have” da “tir” (pronounced tire). Ter da also tae mol fro “has”. Hern you would say, “He tir na car”, sa “They tir na car”. If you add tae suffix “-in”, ter becomes “tiring” sa “had”. If you add tae suffix “-das” (-ing), you tir “tirdas” (having).

While we eldat (elfin) do kon tir much ver tae way u rules, we do tir some share proclivities. We tend toward dance, nar music, nar romance. We tir na unending inclination toward open-mindedness, nar na dedication va doing whatever da ver our power va help, foster, empower, nar nurture our others. We tir na tendency toward individuality, nar uniqueness, kana kon na individuality that da cast against others who da all tae same, nar na individual that da unique among other unique individuals. Nar ena that na incredible tolerance fro others who da equally tolerant. At tae same time, we seem va tir na deep seated intolerance fro tae intolerant. We tir na profound urge va express ours’elves creatively, ever learning nar tedas inspired la our others. If you da like this, you may te eldata (elven), too.


2. wyr (this)

Tae Arvyndase mol fro “this” da “wyr” (pronounced were). Tae use u wyr mol continues va increase your mastery u tae Arvyndase elto.

Wyr much you vek count ton ena tae eldali, you yon nearly always te surprised, things da never quite what one expected. There da na old eldata (elven) expression, which goes like wyr, “Tae subtle masks tae profound.” Unlike re many folks, we eldat (elfin) prefer quite lives fro tae most part. Tae trauma-dramas that re many create ver order va make their lives seem more exciting, more like tae soap operas they seem obsessed ena, nar which they mistake fro real life, do kon appeal va tae eldali. We find excitement ver tae little things, tae subtle glance, tae fleeting kana meaningful look, tae brief caress, tae possibility u kyela (love/romance) va come. While these da less dramatic than tae kyelali (loves) one sees ton television, they da more real va us nar hern more vibrant.

Wyr da also true u our magics, which fro tae most part go unseen la mortal eyes, yet tir greater effects because u wyr. Ale?


3. dij (that)

Tae Arvyndase mol fro “that” da “dij” (pronounced dye-j, that da tae sound “dye” ena na ‘j” pronounced tat one syllable. We wish there dain something ter rhymed ena ver Englysh, kana we vek kon think u anything).

Ter should come tat kon surprised… beloved… dij tae eldali feas (love, fro objects) music, nar dance, nar all things creative, kana most u all we jalar (love, divine) tae magic, fro tae magic da tae source u all manifestation, an (from) tae most mundane va tae most subtle. Ter da tae magic dij most folks call “God”. Tae magic ever seeks ter’na own. Ter ever seeks tae perfection u ter’na manifold creations. Tae magic seeks tae greatest possible diversity ena tae greatest possible harmony. All things ver their own place, perfectly fulfilled ver their unique individual tedas.

Wyr da why tae eldali ever seek va te our own true eldali, va te tae unique tedasli (beings) dij we da. Va do less da va fail va live rep va our true destiny. When you da pressured la others va conform, remember wyr: va give ver va such pressure da va swerve an tae course dij tae magic intends fro you. Te your own true elda, nar ena dij, one vek kon go wrong.


4. nef (if)
Tae mol ver tae Arvyndase elto fro “if” da “nef” (pronounced knee-f, sounds like knife ena na long “e” instead u na “i”).
Nef you tir ever seen tae movie “Tae Nines” ver which tae humans da Sevens, nar tae demi-gods Nines, nar tae psychic koala bears, who tir power over tae weather, da Eights, tae eldali would also te Eights, kon quite human, yet kon re advanced va te Nines, either. Ter da true dij most eldali da human at wyr time. Although kon all eldali manifest tat human. There da dolphin eldali nar bird eldali nar ever trees who da eldata (elven), even eldali who da kon manifest ver physical bodies at all. Kana, there da na select group u us manifesting ver human bodies nar while we appear human, we da kon quite human. We da na touch more than human, perhaps human plus. Slightly more evolved than tae normal folk kana, tat tae Buddhist would point out, still manifesting ton tae wheel u karma, tae wheel u life nar death, nar we should say, ver tat much tat possible, very happily re. Re nef you ever wonder nef we eldali da really human, tae truth da, sort u.

5. zan (at)

“At” ver tae elto u Arvyndase da translated “zan” (pronounced zane).

Ter may seem odd dij, zan times like wyr when tae world seems va te hovering rep tae brink u utter destruction, tae eldat (elfin) begin va manifest ver increasing numbers among humankind. Kana ter da precisely because tae world tir come va wyr juncture dij we eldata (elven) tir appeared. Tae fifth sub race u tae fifth root race da about va give way va tae dominance u tae sixth subrace nar tat per their nature, they da kon inclined va go easily. Ter da tae sixth subrace, tae precursors u tae sixth root race, dij most eldat u peoples dij da va come who da tae truly easy going folk.

Zan least, since wyr da re, tae sixth subrace, tae elda nar otherkin folk yon fro our part make tae transition tat easy fro tae fifth subrace nar our own eldali tat they yon allow us va do re. Nef they would just listen va us, they, too, would profit an (from) wyr transition, kana alas, we expect nar observe dij they da determined va make ter tat hard fro us, nar ultimately themselves tat they da able. Re sad when ter could te re easy nar re much fun.


6. soflor (of course)

Previously, we told you dij va form tae Englysh molli “of course” ver Arvyndase, you vek use tae molli “u” (of) nar tae mol fro “course”, tat we tir done ver earlier lessons. Now, we would like va introduce you va tae mol “soflor” (pronounced sof [as in sofa] – lore) , which da tae Arvyndase mol fro “of course”, kana ter da composed u neither, “of” sa “course”. Soflor, you da still free va use tae molli fro “of” nar “course” nef dij da your desire.

Soflor, wyr flexibility da kon exclusive va our elto (language). We eldali da la nature na extremely flexible nar adaptable people. Ter da wyr adaptability dij tir helped us va preserve our culture nar hide ter ver faery tales nar other forms, even when we dain overrun la more aggressive peoples. Ter da wyr adaptability dij permits us va te our own eldali amidst normal folk who do kon even believe we exist sa tir ever existed. Soflor, kon u wyr da easy fro us, sa only tat easy tat we make ter, nar we eldali seek tae path u least resistance ver all things. Ter da na rule u Nature, nar we ever endeavor, tat opposed va other folks we could mention, va stay in tune ena Nature, our own nar wyr greater Nature dij tae Magic used va create us.


7. ba (do – does) bain (did – done)

Soflor, you da probably hoping fro another verb va use, re here da “ba” (pronounced bah), which da tae Arvyndase mol fro tae Englysh mol “do” nar da also tae Arvyndase mol meaning “does”. Nef you add tae Arvyndase suffix “-in”, you get “bain” (bah – in) sa “did” nar also “done”.

What da ter dij eldali ba dij da different an what others ba? Well, magic soflor, we ba magic while others ba kon even believe ter exists. Ton tae other hand, eldali believe dij all people ba magic, sa nearly all, although most these days ba re unconsciously, while we eldali ba our magic, ver tat much tat possible ena conscious intent. There da those who might argue dij one vek kon ba magic unconsciously, kana these eldali’na (elves’ [possessive]) exist nar tae theories u Carl Jung nar others would argue otherwise. Soflor, eldali da kon big ton arguing, we simply accept dij some folks hold views differently than our own nar we our eldali da always open va changing our views nef more evidence nar experience leads us va think differently. Tedas (being) open-minded nar open-hearted da na part u tedas eldata (elven), ale?


8. bil (too [also]) bam (too [too much])

Ver Arvyndase there da two form fro tae mol “too”. Tae first da bil (pronounced bile) dij da used ver instances where “too” indicates “also”, such tat, “Women feas (love) chocolate, nar tae eldali ba, bil.” There da also “bam” (pronounced bame, rhymes with tame) dij da used va indicate “too much” sa “very”, tat ver, “We smoked way bam much weed” sa “Dij pizza dain kon bam good”.

They say dij bam many cooks spoil tae soup, kana we eldali say you vek never tir bam many eldali. Tae more tae merrier da na old eldat expression nar dij tir va ba ena nearly everything tirdas va ba ena eldali. We vek never get enough u each other, there vek never te enough eldali. Ter da kon dij we never wish ba te alone, kana when we ba we usually wish va te alone ena each other. Fro we vek sing nar dance together, kana we eldali vek te silent together, bil. We vek sit ver silence ena each other, nar never say na word, nor need va ba re, fro we already know what tae other thinks, nar often finish each other’s sentences. Fro we da eldali, ale?


9. wyl (all)


Tae mol fro “all” ver Arvyndase da “wyl” (pronounced will). Ena wyl tae molli you now know ver Arvyndase, you da becoming quite proficient ver tae elto. Tae mol “wyl” da kon one dij da used often ver reference va tae eldali. Except perhaps va say, we da wyl different, we da wyl unique individuals. We da wyl magical tedasli (beings). Wyr da about wyl dij vek te said about wyl eldali. Well, maybe also, we da wyl independent minded. We wyl tend va te open minded, bil.


Nar ter da true dij kon wyl tae things you may tir read ver faery tales da true about us either. How va tell tae true an tae false? Only tae eldali know, nar we only know la trusting our hearts. What da true fro one elda may kon te true fro wyl, fro each must decide fro their own elda what da true fro their elda, nar leave others va decide fro their own elda what da true fro their eldali. Nar dij, paradoxically, da true fro wyl eldali.


10. nawe (also)

Ver Arvyndase tae mol fro “also” da “nawe” (pronounced nay – wee).

Another thing dij we might nawe about wyl elves da dij we tir na tendency va question authority. We ba kon simply accept what we da told kana da ever questioning whether what we tir tein told da tae truth, da, ver fact, true. Even ver reading wyr there da elves out there who da immediately saying va their eldali, da wyr true fro me,nar nawe da wyr true fro wyl elves?

While wyr da true u eldali, ter da nawe true u some other peoples, kana ver many ways we eldali da tae most questioning folk u wyl. While many da eager va te tae ones ena tae answers, we eldali da ever eager ena our questions. Ter da kon dij we ba kon tir answers, kana our answer tend va te many faceted, like tae eldata (elven) people our s’eldali (s’elves).


11. dosh (such)

Ver tae Arvyndase elto tae mol fro “such” da “dosh” (pronounced doe-sh).

Dosh na tender breeze like na faerie’s kiss
Ba touch me ton tae cheek
Nar bring va mind far memories
U wyl dij I bain seek
U sparkling eyes, nar whispered sighs
Nar dances ver tae round
Among tae shining, gentle folk
Where my true kyela dain found
Ver Eldat (Elfin) where our dreams come true
Nar wyl we wish yon te
Dosh merriment nar joy abounds
Nar we da ever free.


12. ina (some)

Tae mol fro “some” ver Arvyndase da “ina” (pronounced eye – nah). Wyl eldali da aritists.

Ina da artists who paint, nar ina da artists who write. Others da artists u dance, nar others still da artists u music. Ina da artists ver tae kitchen, nar ina da artists ena auto mechanics, nar others still da artists ena mathematics. Nearly, wyl u us da artists ver tae bedroom, nar wyl u us da artists u life. Life artists, fro life da indeed our great art nar life va we eldata da magic. Hearn (thus) while kon wyl u us ba ceremonial magic, wyl eldali da magical tedasli fro life da magic, nar magic da art, nar our art da tae magic dij da life.nar kyela.

Ina eldali might disagree ena wyr, kana dij seems unlikely since we eldat da kon really disagreeable sorts. We da however questioners, who question everything, ever seeking tae truth ver wyl things, nar ever seeking va see nef what we tir tein told agrees ena what we know va te truth, nar what we tir experienced. Fro while we da artists we da nawe scientists seeking tae truth, tae source, tae magic dij ina folks call God nar which we eldali call Divine.


13. boro (even)

Tae mol ver Arvyndase fro “even” da “boro” (pronounced bore – row).

Boro though our eldat (elfin) culture da kon longer recognized ver tae world, ver fact, da thought la many va tir never va tir existed zan (at) wyl, we eldali persist, tat ba our culture nar our people, nar boro nef ter da true dij we never existed tat na culture ver tae past, ter da nawe true dij we exist now nar da living nar creating our culture every day. Despite tae scorn nar derision many u us face an (from) re many whose minds da incapable, ter seems, u accepting us tat eldali, sa accepting our own feas (love) u our culture. Nar ver spite u tae fact dij zan tae same time, they insist we da weird nar different. When we tell them dij da because we da eldali, they think we da crazy. Dij da okay because we know they da morons nar we forgive them boro re.

We make kon claims va special powers, neither ba we think our place ver tae universal plan da any more special than anyone else’s, kana we ba insist gos (on) our right va te our very own eldali, nar va creat nar define our own culture, boro though others ba kon believe ver ter. How they vek close their minds va reality boro when ter da staring them ver tae face nar whispering ver their ear, we ba kon know, kana we ba accept dij wyr da na vast nar mysterious Universe.

Note, ver Arvyndase tae mol fro “even” ver tae sense u tedas tae opposite u odd da “jaja” (pronounced jah – jah).


14. vari (ever)

Tae Englysh mol “ever” da translated tat “vari” (pronounced vay – rye) ver Arvyndase. Vari since tae Violynts, nar tae Gredes, nar tae Grymlen, nar tae Gobler, nar tae other aggressive peoples came nar took our land an (from) us nar would tir killed sa enslaved us wyl nef we tirin kon gone verva hiding, gone underground both figuratively nar actually, there tir tein legends dij ter da dangerous va speak u us. Dangerous mostly va us, really, fro nef they spoke u us, believed dij we existed they would likely come va kill us, those folks who hate wyl dij da different than themselves, boro their own children. They hate people u different religions, different countries, different skin colors, boro people who dress differently, nar we eldali vari dress differently.

Kana, times da changing nar boro though tae Hatyrs still populate much u tae world, things tir tein getting vari more hospital fro we eldali, perhaps kon re much dij ter da na kinder world, kana they ba kon boro believe we exist zan wyl. Kana, we yon take what we vek get nar proceed ena care va re-awaken our kindred.


15. jan (here)

Ver Arvyndase tae mol fro “here” da “jan” (pronounced jan –like tae name. Ter should tir two dots above ter, like na umlaut, however ver Arvyndase wyr denotes na “a’ sound tat ver “at” sa “hat” sa “Jan” sa “ban”).

Where da Elfland, Faerie, Eldat (Elfin)? Why, ter da jan. Ter da wherever eldali da. Fro ter da kon Elfin dij creates us, kana we eldata who create Eldat. Ter da everywhere we abide nar tae fact dij kon wyl vek see wyr simple truth da only va point out dij kon wyl people da seers, kon wyl, ver fact few, da eldali. Nar ter da true dij men nar other kinds use their non magic va suppress tae manifestation u Eldat, kana we need keep our spirits strong, re dij Eldat yon emerge tat vibrations an our tedasli nar subtly influence wyl who da open va such gentle nar magical energies. Where da Eldat? Why ter da jan, vari jan, always jan, vari where there da eldali.


16. norn (there)

Ver Arvyndase tae mol fro “there” da “norn” (pronounced nor-n).Tat ver Englysh, wyr Arvyndase uses norn both va indicate na place, tat ver over norn, nar va create emphasis tat ver nornver (therein), which combines tae molli fro norn (there) nar ver (in). Norn vek nawe te combined ena “ena” va tir nornena (therewith). Norn da nawe nornbasar (thereabouts) la combining norn ena tae mol fro “about”, which da basar (pronounced bay – sayr) nar va laka (pronounced lah – kay, since na vowel after na “k’ da nearly always na long vowel), tae mol fro “after”, hearn (thus) nornlaka (thereafter). Nawe, tae mol “arn” (pronounced air-n) vek te added va ter, which da na shortened form u tae mol “larn” (pronounced lair-n), va get nornarn sa ver English “fore” , usually used tat na prefix.


17. el (I) eli (we)

Ver tae Arvyndase elto, tae mol fro “ I” da “El” (pronounced eel), nar tae mol fro “we” da “eli” (pronounced e – lie). Wyr da due va tae fact dij va tae eldali, “we” (eli) da composed u na group u “ I’s” (eli), hearn (thus) giving eli tae idea dij boro ver na group tae elda always maintains hir individuality. La adding tae possessive suffix ‘na va these molli eli get el’na (my nar mine) nar eli’na (our – ours).

One might think dij eli eldali da nornarn (therefore) kon na very group oriented folk, kana tae truth da dij because eli da able va retain eli’na individuality ver groups, nar eli’na families certainly foster individuality, eli find forming groups far easier than most peoples, nar ena far less tension nar conflict. Nef eli eldali ba kon agree basar (about) something, eli simply nar very effortlessly go eli’na own way, ena everyone’s blessing.


18. hae (he – him) vae (she – her) kae (hir – sHe)

Tae Arvyndase mol fro “he” da “hae (pronounced hay). Ter da nawe tae mol fro “him”. La adding tae suffix “ ‘na”, you get hae’na sa “his”. Ter mol fro “she” nar “her” da “vae”. “Her” ver ter’na possessive form, tat ver, “Dij da “her” coat”, would te vae’na, hearn “Dij da vae’na coat”.

Ver Englysh, norn da kon gender neutral term when speaking u individuals. Tat ver, “One might go va tae store nef, he sa she feels like ter”. Often, individuals writing ver Englysh use tae pural “they” ver wyr instance, saying, “One might go va tae store ner they feel like ter.”

Wyr da grammatically incorrect kana da common usage. Eli eldali often use tae molli “hir” combining “him” nar “her” sa “sHe” combining “she” nar “he”. Ver Arvyndase both “hir” nar “sHe” da signified la tae mol “kae” (pronounced kay). Tae possessive da “kae’na” (kay – nah), which would te “hirs”.

Obviously, tae problem “men” face when they say “Mankind” va represent both tae male nar female members u their race, da kon na problem fro tae eldat (elfin) fro eli da wyl proud va call ours’elves Elda-kind.


19. tam (they – them)

Ver Arvyndase tae mol fro “they” nar “them” da “tam” (pronounced tame). Nef you add tae suffix “ ‘na”, you get tae possessive “tam’na” sa ver Englysh, “their” sa “theirs”.

When eli eldali speak u tam, eli da usually speaking u tae Normyl folk, kana eli vek nawe te speaking u tae various Grymlen clans, nar other peoples dosh tat tae Violynts, tae Gobler, tae Brutysh, nar others who da kon men kana often appear va te re. Tae da truly “other” kana u tae cruel, often vicious, nar certainly untrustworthy variety. Tam ba kon trust each other, nar eli certainly ba kon trust tam, nar eli expect tam ba kon boro trust tam’na own selves, most u tae time.

Ter da true dij norn da some simple souls who look zan eli askance when eli speak u “tam”, saying eli da wyl one, which da true ver tae most Cosmic sense kana jan ton Earth, these fools da tae natural prey u tae Gobler nar others, nar ter da only tam’na natural innocence, nef indeed tam da innocent dij yon protect tam an harm.


20. le (you) el (me)

Ver tae Arvyndase elto tae mol fro “me” da tae same tat tae mol fro “I”, dij da “el”. Tae mol fro “you” da “le” (pronounced lee). Often when eldali speak u le nar el, eli da speaking u romance, since romance nar creativity da eli’na chief occupations nar pre-occupations. Nawe, eli’na goal, eli’na purpose, nar eli’na joy. Soflor (of course), le nar el da kon tat intimate tat eli (we sa us) kana va tae eldali dosh na reference begins va approach dij more intimate, familial, nar desired closeness.

Speaking u le nar el da far different than speaking u eli nar tam. Eli nar tam usually indicates na different between those who belong ena eli nar those who choose va stand against eli. Kana le nar el denotes na approaching nar growing possibility u intimacy. Le may kon te one u eli yet, kana ter da gos tae way u happening.

Le might get tae idea an wyr dij eli eldali da na clannish people, nar nef le mean la dij dij eli feln each other ena na passion, dij da true. Kana nef le mean dij eli keep only va eli’na s’elves nar exclude others, wyr da kon re, fro wyl those who come va eli sincerely da welcome among eli nar none da arbitrarily excluded.


21. os (own)

Tae Arvyndase mol fro tae Englysh mol “own” da “os” (pronounced oh-ss). Nef le add tae suffix “-fa”, le get osfa sa “owner”, nar nef le add tae suffix “-mar” (-ship) le tir osmar, which da “ownship” sa translated verva Englysh would te, “ownership”. Soflor, nef one wished va make na direct translation, ter would te osfamar, which would nawe work fro these eldali. Eli da, laka wyl, na very flexible folk.

Ter da eli’na experience dij flexibility da na aspect u intelligence. Tae more intelligent na person da, tae more flexible tam vak te, nar those u lesser intelligence da very strict basar rules. Eli eldali tend, tat much tat ter da ver eli’na power va avoid dosh individuals. Although, eli use tae mol “individual” very generous jan, since tam tend va te quite robotic ver tam’na thinking nar hern tam’na lives.


22. kord (make) wesys (make out - kiss) corval (make out – discern)

Eli’na mol fro “make” da “kord” (pronounced cord). La adding tae suffix “-das”, eli get korddas (making), nar when eli added tae suffix “-in” eli tir kordin (made… literally maked). Wyr da na very important mol ver Arvyndase since creativity, sa korddas (making) things da zan tae heart u what eli ba. Eli kord kyela. Eli kord magic. Eli kord out. Although, actually tae mol fro “make out”, tat ver kissing da “wesys”. La adding “-das”, eli get wesysdas (making out: literally make outing), nad nef eli added tae suffix “-in (ed)”, eli tir wesysin sa “made out” (literally: make outed), tat ver “eli wesysin ver tae car”.

Va tae eldat mind, va kord something da va create ter, nar since creation da na aspect u tae Divine, dij da va say, tae Magic, then va kord anything da va ba magic. When one instills tam’na korddas ena conscious thought nar intention, nar backs ter rep ena Yon power, wyr magic, dij da korddase, becomes very powerful indeed.

Norn da nawe tae mol corval (pronounced core – vale) dij means “make out” ver tae sense u discerning sa figuring something out. Tat ver, “El dain trying va corval what kae dain saying” sa, “Vek le corval what dij da ver tae distance?’


23. jae (who)

Ver Arvyndase tae mol fro “who” da “jae” (pronounced jay). Jae da tae eldata people? Why eli da. Nar jae da eli? Why eli da eldali. Dosh circular seeming reasoning leads many folks va think u eli tat tedas evasive, kana tat eli tir said previously, eli da dosh na diverse nar unique people dij ter da very difficult va accurately define eli, except va point out tae protean nature u eli’na tedas. Eli da kon merely shape-shifters kana nawe shift-shapers. Eli’na merely presense sends ripples u change verva eli’na environment. One u eli begins va subtly affect things. Two u eli together sends ripples u changes ver concentric circles wide basar. Three sa more u eli nar everything ver near proximity begins va transform entirely until, ver time, wyl tir changed.

Nar what does ter change va? Ter changes according va jae eli da. Eli’na eldat nature starts va rub off tonva wyl eli come verva contract ena. Nar yet, eli da changed tat well. Eli eldali tir na saying, “Le vek kon change anything u le vek kon change le’na (your) self.”


24. wu (what)

Tae mol ver Arvyndase fro tae Englysh mol “what” da “wu” (pronounced woo).

Wu da tae eldali rep va? Well, ver na temporary sense le could say eli da rep va saving tae world, sa saving tae forests, nar saving tae whales, etc. Le could equally say eli da badas tae magic va bring tae return u Faerie/Eldat. Kana, wu yon eli va when wyl dij da bain? Eli yon create… create magic, create romance, create kyela, create art, create na better, more magical, more jalardas world fro everyone.

Wu ba eli eldali want. Eli want va live ver na world where one vek walk anywhere zan night, enakon fear u tedas raped, sa robbed, sa molested. Eli want va live ver na world dij da harmony ena nature, instead u choking an (from) pollution. Na world where each nar every one tir na chance va develop tam selves va tam’na fullest nar tir tae eduation nar tools va ba re. Ina folk think eli da naïve idealists. Eli see eli’na s’elves tat tedas visionary futurists. Time yon tell jae’na (whose) magic da more powerful.

Note: La adding vari (ever) va wu, le get wuvari (whatever).


25. nas (when)

Tae Arvyndase mol fro tae Englysh mol “when” da “nas” (pronounced nayce).

Nas yon Eldat come va te? Dij more perfect world? Why now. Always now. Now fro those u eli jae live tae dream, dij da create Eldat ver eli’na daily lives, nar now fro those jae yon awaken va tam’na true nature ver tae future. Fro tae possibility u Eldat exists ever nar always, nar fro any individual ter could come va te ton any day. Nar fro wyl u eli together ter yon happen nas ter happens nar dij day yon te now.

Nas dij moment comes, nas eli see tae potential fro Eldat ver wyl things, wyl le dreams vek come true nar le’na yon bring le wuvari le desires. Kana wu ba eldali desire more than Eldat? Only eli’na kindred, kana va eli dij da tae same thing.


26. ern (where)

Tae Arvyndase mol fro “where” da “ern” (pronounced ear-n).

Ern da Eldat? Why ter da jan. Kana nef ter da jan, why vek ter kon te vari seen? Because, ter lives enaver (within) eli. Ter da kon Eldat dij creates eldali kana eli eldali dij create Eldat. Ter lives ver potential wyl basar eli, kana ter depends repton eli eldali va bring ter va life. Fro one elda alone, wyr da very difficult nar beyond tae power u wyl kana tae greatest eldata magicians. Hern na elda alone vari seeks other eldali sa tends va fall back under tae spell u tae world. Two eldali together da much stronger nar tat long tat tam stay together tam’na magic yon begin va create Eldat/Faerie basar tam. Ena three sa more eldali wyr power grows vari stronger.

Still, boro one elda vek create na atmosphere u Eldat ena kae dress, tae way kae decorates kae home, nar tae magic kae ba. Yet, ultimately ter da kon tae way eli dress sa decorate eli’na surroundings dij created Eldat, kana tae way eli treat each other, eli’na relationship va eli’na others.

La first developing eli’na os s’elves, nar then, nar an wyr, eli’na relationship ena eli’na others, na wondrous magic comes verva tedas enakon eli’na boro trying.

Ter da na mystery, kana Eldat, while existing enaver eli nar tedas born u eli’na interaction, jalar, courtesy, nar mutual respect u each other, nawe lives enakon eli. Ter lives ton ter’na os, born u tae Magic dij da tae source u wyl things. Still, ter da nawe true dij nef eli ba kon experience ter enaver eli, eli vekkon experience ter enakon eli. Sa ter yon live enakon eli, kana eli yon never realize ter. Laka wyl, norn da many folks jae see eli eldali enakon truly seeing eli, nar wander verva Eldat enakon vari recognizing ter. Wyr da because Eldat da kon re much na physical place ver tae world, kana na spiritual place. Ter da kon location dij determines ern Eldat abides kana ambience.

Re vace ba eli eldali ba re much magic va bring tae Return u Faerie, sa eli would call ter, tae creation u Eldat? Because ter da eli’na destiny, eli’na jalar, eli’na joy, eli’na creative expression. Because eli eldali jalar Eldat. Tae magic u Eldat da tae solution va wu ails mankind nar others ver tae world. Ter da tae key va healing tae Earth nar tae spiritual upliftment u wyl humanity. Kana fro eli ter da eli’na way, eli’na path va spiritual realization nar development.
Vas ba eli care basar wu happens va other races? Eli vekkon help kana care. Ter da ver eli’na nature va ba re. Vas ba eli jalar Eldat re much? Eli vekkon help eli’na selves, eli da eldali.

Tae Arvyndase mol fro “vary” da “yali” (pronounced yeah – lie). While eli’na basic interests da tae same, beyond dij tae interest u individual eldali yali greatly. Ver fact, eli da intersted, tat na people, ver nearly everything. Kana tat individuals one eldali may te lefa interested ver sports sa computers, another’s interest vek yali entirely an dij. Wu ba kon yali da eli’na mutual respect fro each other nar each other’s creative interests nar pursuits.


30. eldon (magic) dater (magus) poso (however)

Ver Arvyndase tae mol fro “magic” da “eldon” (pronounced L – doan). Tae “e” tir na dot over ter re ter take ton tae sound u tae “L” dij follows ter.
