Elven Glossary

Sometimes it is hard to go back and forth to the glossary in a book, but I put it in the back to make it easier to find. I am also placing it here, so you can reference when needed. (If I figure out how to add a table, I’ll even up those endings… 🙂 )  I have decided to expand this page when I have new words to add to my language — but they will be in red, and italicized to separate them from the old words. These words are not found in The Luckless Prince.
