Vanyarin

The form of Quenya spoken by the Vanyar (PE18/76, WJ/417). It was close enough to the speech of the Noldor that it can be considered a dialect rather than a distinct language (PE19/70), and the entries in this lexicon focus only on the differences between the two dialects. Some of these differences may be due to the influence of the language of the Valar, since more of its words were adopted by the Vanyar than by the Noldor (WJ/399).
