Umm, I think that most of those who are now in the 'scholarship' camp (including yours truly) have tried translating something or other into the Elvish languages, but have now given up. Overall, however, I'd say that there's a quite a few folks who are totally aware of the fact that what they try to write is not quite Tolkien stuff, and explicitly do not pretend to write Tolkien stuff. Personally, I have no problem with them. Pavel -- Pavel Iosad Nid byd, byd heb wybodaeth --Welsh saying
