The so called Elf-Latin or High-Elven of of Tolkienian mythos; the language of the Western elves, and suppossedly created by them when they "awoke" (at least the language in a primitive form, or proto-elven). Related to the other elven toungues devised by Tolkien, Quenya was the book and lore language of elves, while related Sindarin and the unrelated man-speach Westron were prefered in everyday speech.

Quenya is a conlang of J.R.R. Tolkien's invention. With a grammar and word formation rules inspired by Finnish, and to a lesser extent Latin and Greek, Quenya was normally written in the tengwar in the mythos but in reality is normally realized with a Latin language inspired orthography. Quenya's words are mostly a priori.
