Re: new relay

Somehow I've managed to miss all the previous relays.  Don't know why, since
I love doing translations.  In any case count me and amman iar in on this
one (not sure nathya is ready quite yet).

I agree with Dirk about the cultural biases that often lurk in poetry.  A
bit of prose would be better, I think.  As for Tolkien, well, I'm currently
on a Quenya linguistic binge and am in the process of reviewing my rather
extensive T. collection.  I'm afraid I am all too likely to stumble upon the
selected passage no matter how obscure.

OT: I am in the process of Shoeboxing all that I discover about Quenya
morphosyntax and can already generate some rather impressive interlinear
translations. Any fellow Shoeboxers or Q enthusiasts interested?

Stay curious,
