New Language Request!!

I've been learning Quenya Elvish for a while and would like to help add it here in Duolingo. It is a fun Middle Earth language that is very pretty when written.

This is Quenya Elvish. All vowels in the words go above the letter before them.

Conlangs are fascinating and learning them is impressive - I salute you! :)

If you wanted to add a course to DL, the best way is to suggest it. Read this for more info:
https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/articles/204979660-How-can-I-suggest-a-new-language-course-

Stuff that gets posted in the forums can so easily get lost in the shuffle. Also, if you have friends who know the language, ask them to sign up for DL too and suggest the language also. DL is volunteer-heavy, so the more folks who know the language (and are willing to teach it), the more likely you'll get a chance to be on the language team.

Awesome! I hope you can contribute one day, I love LOTR and I'd sign up for any Tolkein language in an instant!

I've read up a little on Quenya grammar, but I haven't actually started learning anything yet... partially because I haven't found a font that doesn't go weird on my computer and I prefer typing notes :D Do you type up your notes, or handwrite everything? My Tengwar handwriting is awful lol, although I've only properly practised the English mode so I've not actually used it in the context of actual Elvish :P

I don't have a font for Quenya, so I handwrite it

How?

Well if you use the image I posted earlier, you can copy the letters down on a notebook or something. All vowels go above the letter before them unless it silent. Then it goes under the letter before it.

Hi DieDeutschKafer,

If you want to make a [course] suggestion, we encourage you to visit the forums and making a search for suggestions that have been made in the past, and adding your vote and comments to those existing posts [and thus not creating a new one{@style=color:blue;font-style:normal;}]. That will make the request more popular and make it stand out more, encouraging more people to add their votes. :)

From Help Center: "How can I suggest a new language course?"
Note: Texts in between square brackets are additions of mine.


You'll find for example here a 1 year old and popular discussion where you can add your vote and even comment.

Aiya! I'm sorry for the stress I'm giving to you all, but has someone done the application for Quenya yet?
