Telerin

The language of the third tribe of Elves, as it was spoken in Aman (S/59). Though some loremasters considered it a dialect of Quenya, the Teleri considered their speech a distinct language (WJ/375). After Quenya and Sindarin, Telerin is the best described Elvish language, with distinctive (and deliberate) Latin flavor to its sounds (PE19/22).
