Easy and informative,
This review is from: Languages of Tolkien's Middle-earth (Paperback)
If you are intrested in the subject and want to know more about it, this book is very nice to start with. The writer doesn't expect you to have any foreknowledge, exept that you have read Tolkien's 'The Lord of the Rings'.
After you have read it, you have some background information and some base-luggage before you start studying more comprehensive and hard-to-read works like 'An introduction to elvish'.
But if you are a somewhat more studied into the subject, like me and some of my co-rewriters, you'll find that it contains lots of inaccuracies. It is quite incomplete and more then sometimes incorrect.
But still I recommend it to those who're just starting their study as an enrichment of their base-knowledge. But it's absolutely useless and even misleading as a reference.
