The Nolltod (Noldor) use a shortened form of 'elf' developed from Quenya _queen_ used as an impersonal pronoun. In Cein this becomes _cui_ [kUj]. The unstressed form is _ce_ [tSE] or [tS@] from Quenya _quen_. The unstressed form is obviously much more used than _cui_. ||| daniel _________________________________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free E-mail from MSN Hotmail at
