Outer information

There have been various speculations about Tolkien's ideas about the Avari languages, for example Cuind, Hwenti, Kindi, Kinn-Lai,Penni and Windan are thought to be inspired by old irish, Gothic, Arabic, Chinese, Gaulish and Anglo-Saxon. ICE often used it's own elvish languages, Dyar, Erlin, Iylar and Muri or invented Neo-Avarin vocabulary, loosely based on Magyar.

The Neo-Avarin used on this Wiki usually is based on Tolkiens early or primitive Kwendian, which is in every case modified after the example of the few Avarin terms Tolkien gave us: Penni, Kinn-lai, Hwenti, Kindi, Cuind, Windan and possible proto-Avarin (or Ilkorin) Eol, , Túvo, Nuin, Tareg, Ermon, Elmir... (plus an additional hypothetic "northern Avarin" which differed from the other known dialects by it's peculiar lack of initial consonants)
