The information presented in this section is the Sindarin language as Tolkien described it during the publication of the Lord of the Rings and afterwards (1950-1973). Words from earlier forms of the language (Noldorin, Gnomish) are not included here, even though some of Tolkien’s earlier conceptions probably remained valid. For a more complete list of Sindarin words to use in writing, see the Neo-Sindarin language section.
