    I've added the Elven names from the card insert. Could someone who is actually knows Irish fill in the other pronounciations? I can guess at a few that weren't included, but I'd rather not write it in and be found to be wrong!

    Well, if you want to merge them, go ahead. My question was about the pronounciation guides, which the main Elven article doesn't include.

    Has this already been done?

    I wouldn't mind helping with Irish pronunciation.

    I'm sorry if I'm wrong, but the Elven names to me sounded more Welsh than Irish.

    There are plenty of elves, and they have had a long time to gain accents - so welsh or irish should both be good, and a pronunciation guide would be great for people like me who don't know the difference)

    Yes, I have totally forgotten about, for example, Allanalaigh. That could pass as Irish.

    I could gladly help with Welsh as well...though Irish is easiest for me.

    Both are of the same root language; with Welsh being a bit more difficult to pronounce at times (for me at least).

    I could instead simply take a list given me, and then simply make a pronunciation guide for both.

    If someone emails me the list, I'll hammer it out and then email it back to be posted. I'm fine using email; but most other computer things (like the Wiki stuff) is not something I'm practiced in at all.
