Etymologies of the Atani Languages (EotAL)

— Andreas Moehn; 28 June 2006; http://lalaith.vpsurf.de/Tolkien/Atani.html

An article that attempts to deduce the etymological connections between the attested words of the major Mannish languages of Middle Earth, particularly Adûnaic and Westron. As Mr. Moehn admits, this involves considerable speculation, given the limitations of the corpus. Nevertheless, the article does contain interesting insights. References are by the entry in the Etymology.
