Jörg, Since Nur-ellen is even closer to its Sindarin source (at least lexically) than amman iar, you might be interested in the recently self-published "Sindarin Dictionary" by Ryszard Derdzinski. I have ordered a copy which should be arriving any day now. Ryszard is active on another list I subscribe to and he is anxious to have his text reviewed by others (as well as recouping his printing costs). The dictionary is said to contain nearly 2000 entries and may well be the most comprehensive lexicon currently available for this under-documented language. Ryszard has a website with details at David David E. Bell The Gray Wizard "Wisdom begins in wonder." - Socrates
