Noldorin

The language the Noldor as Tolkien conceived of it in his Middle Period (1930-1950 in the terminology of this lexicon). At this stage, Qenya was the language of the first tribe of Elves only. The Noldorin language was the precursor to the Sindarin language that Tolkien defined shortly before the publication of The Lord of the Rings.
