    Thramili's Khuzdul Dictionary(revisited)

    Added new words; sorted many words; Corrections; added phrases (still in rough draft, still revising. Making it sound less uncared for (like Orcish ) )

    Khuzdul, the secret language ONLY KNOWN by dwarves (and a few lucky Noldor, which are all but extinct). AND ONLY spoken when NO OTHER RACES (The speaking peoples) are around. The only common words in Khuzdul known is the famous battle cry, Baruk Khazâd! Khazâd ai-mênu! meaning Axes of the Dwarves! The Dwarves are upon you!
    I created these Khuzdul words for serious dwarf RPers, which should only be spoken in private with other dwarves. There are a few dictionaries found in the internet (Which I will link). I find that many don't find words that I like to use while RPing so I made with word list while trying to keep the rules of khuzdul, and the radicals as well.

    Thramili’s Khuzdul (Derived of Haakon’s Khuzdul, and Toady One’s Armokian along with other extrapolated resources)
    Notes: If a suffix is used in midsentence (Trade of Bree) then it would be Gartazd-u-Khuradh.
    Singular - Plural - Of (Axes of -) (Order of words)
    Notice on ‘the’: There is not word for ‘the’ it is implied.
    Notice on ‘Of -’: Of - is shown on here as Plural, to show singular make the vowels switch place (E.g. Plural: Faluk Singular: Fulak)
    Notice on showing possessive plurals: To make your word possessive (Forge’s) use singular with a the suffix ‘-me’ (deprived from khuzdul word, men(u) meaning you/me) at the end

  2. On the topic of Neo-Khuzdul. I've made 2 PDF dictionaries (289 pages each) for all to download and use.
    These might come in handy for Dwarven RP-ers.

    Some points to take into account concerning these:
    * These differ quite a lot from Thramili's Khuzdul Dictionary - mainly as other sources were used to create these.
    * This is a Beta version - meaning that some items might not be included as yet.
    * As the other lessons - which can be found HERE, the content is based on
    a) Tolkien's writings
    b) David Salo's writings
    c) Khuzdul Vocabulary used in LOTRO
    d) Adûnaic
    e) Modern day semitic languages such as Hebrew and Arabic.

    * These dictionaries do not contain information related to conjugation, tenses, systems or word order, however other documents below do.



    Search Tip: As these are in PDF, the easiest way to search is simpy to use CRTL-F and type what you need.

    For those of you that were wondering where I got much of the information related to neo-khuzdul, many of the below documents contain source references.

    Now, one thing that I noticed when reading about khuzdul is that much of what is written to date is written in a language that requires a degree in linguistics.... with the below documents I tried to avoid that as much as I could and make this accessible to all.

    I hope these will help any lotro dwarf RP-er with an interest in the language.

    I have been looking for a Khuzdul dictionary for some time now becouse i RP both my dwarves. I want to stay true to lore so I have a few questions. Is this legit, did Tolkien or someone close to him write these works? Or did some random mmorpg player just write them?
    Chrisandir, man Captain 100 | Raxus dwarf Guardian 51 | Chrorin dwarf Hunter 30 | Strillo hobbit Burglar 3 | Butche man Champion 29 |
    | Falaminianteraglith dwarf Runekeeper 20 | Randu man Lore-master 17 | Nafthali woman Warden 12 |

    This is so beautiful, thank you for making this. I play nothing but Dwarves (I have a huge obsession), and this will be great.

  5. FYI - the bad news is... the previously mentioned documents are no longer available...

    The good news is that I've made available extensive new dictionaries and support documents:
