How are Morphemes Used?

The most common method is to inflect them directly into the corpus. They may, however, be delivered orally or nasally. Morpheme use is generally accompanied by a ritual involving intricate movements of the mouth.

misandry-mermaid:

Today in my linguistics class we watched the final episode of “Do you speak American?” There is a segment in it where they talk about how BMW chose the voice for its voice activated computer system. The first cars they released had a female voice, but BMW had to recall them almost instantly because men couldn’t handle being told what to do by a woman. The voice they use now is male, but younger and not too masculine-sounding, so as not to sound threatening to male customers.

Apparently male egos are so fragile that they can be threatened by a car GPS system. But of course women are okay with being told what to do by a man, because society has programmed us to think of that as normal.

*Masculine computerized voice*: Turn right at First Street.

Dudebro: Wait, did that machine just tell me what to do?  DID THIS FUCKING F****T-ASS COMPUTER JUST TELL ME WHERE TO TURN??  Nah, man, I RULE THE ROAD!  This is MY fucking car!  Stand back babe, I gotta defend your honor.  Tell me where to turn again, you little shit!  Come at me bro!  COME AT ME, BRO!!

YOU NIQQAS WANNA LEARN ELVISH?! HERE YA GO!

is this legit?

This is legit. My husband, sitting across the room, looks over and says, “IS THAT SOMEONE SHOWING HOW TO CONVERT ENGLISH TO TENGWAR?  BECAUSE THAT’S THE WAY!”

Believe this man.  He owns atlases of Middle Earth, the complete history of Middle Earth (leatherbound), and has read the books at least 150 times.  Also: speaks elvish.

Yes.

What if there are two vowels in a row?

Does anyone know the answer to that last question?

Jill.

THIS IS SO EXCITING

THIS IS SO COOL OMG

If there are two vowels in a row, you use a carrier placeholder. It’s a plain straight line, like the letter i without a dot, that just exists to hold extra vowels.

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT

this is important

There are other modes of writing Tengwar as well. ^^

“Can I touch your butt” in Elvish.

This is so useful

No, this is not “Can I touch your butt” in Elvish. This is “Can I touch your butt?” in English, transcribed using the letters of the Elvish alphabet. There is a difference. 

In Elvish, the letters of the alphabet correspond to sounds, not to words. The above text spells it out using one symbol to represent one letter of the original English, which is incorrect:

  • c-a-n  i  t-o-u-c-h  y-o-u-r  b-u-t-t

If you really want to spell out an English phrase using the Elvish alphabet, you would do so phonetically, which would basically equate to one symbol per phoneme (sound):

  • c-a-n  a-i  t-u-ch  y-o-r  b-u-t

If you actually wanted to write “Can I touch your butt?” in Elvish, one (very rough) translation would be:

  • Annog nin daf pladan tele ci?

Which, in Sindarin Elvish, roughly translates to, “Would you give me permission to touch your rear?”

Written in tengwar (the Elvish alphabet), it would look like this:

Sorry for the blurry quality.

damn, the lotr fandom doesnt fuck around

wow

not to mention LOOK HOW POLITE THIS WAS
