How to say ‘where’, ‘when’, ‘why’ and ‘how’

Nimlothiel #128

Hi, I was wondering how you would say the following in sindarin as I’ve looked on this site and I can’t seem to find them: ‘Where’, ‘when’ (question form not ‘ir’), ‘why’ and ‘how’. I’ve looked on other sites and they all seem to say that: Where = mas, When = mar. Why = amman, How = manen. Are these no longer accepted? I’ve put them forward as a contribution but they were rejected. Thankyou very much!

There are no attested translations for these words in Sindarin. The community has coined cognates based on Quenya, but these are still subject to debate.

Therefore, we prefer to be patient and wait for Tolkien Estate to release more material on Sindarin.
