Pronunciation Guide

Note: the Elven in this story is my own creation. It’s strongly influenced by Tolkien, but also has elements of Hebrew and other languages.

Quick Pronunciation Guide to Elven Words
A – Ah
E – Eh
I – Ee (unless it is preceded by DR… see below)
O – Oh
U – Oo
CH – pronounced like the “h” at the beginning of “chaunukah.”
LL – when preceded by a vowel, it’s pronounced with a “y” sound combined with the vowel that comes afterward (e.g. Elles is pronounced Eh-yase).
DR – “r” is rolled on the tongue. DR changes “I” from “Ee” to “Eh.”
