Parma Eldalamberon Issue No. 12 contains the “Qenya Lexicon” in its entirety. This is a dictionary of the language of the Elves of Tol Eressea as created by J. R. R. Tolkien. It is organized by roots, related words being grouped together under a designation of the sounds that they share due to their relationship […] Excerpts from the Lexicon were published in the Appendices to The Book of Lost Tales, those items that threw light on the names of people and places in the Lost Tales. This edition includes the whole dictionary, which runs to about 600 roots and over 3000 entries. […]
The Qenya Lexicon entries are fully cross-referenced to both The Book of Lost Tales and to the Gnomish Lexicon (I-Lam na-Ngoldathon, published in Parma Eldalamberon No. 11). Both the Phonology and Lexicon, to which J. R. R. Tolkien gave the overall title of Qenyaqetsa, are presented with editorial commentary on changes made in the manuscript, and the relation of this linguistic work to Tolkien’s other contemporary stories, poems, and drawings.
