This page is an ongoing effort to build a table of Elvish words (any Elvish, dark or light) in the hopes of providing help when considering Lore questions, as many prophecies and such make references to words having their roots in Elvish, this may help us decipher the in-game hints.

Elvish is the Latin of Norrath. Nearly every language has words with roots in Elvish, and many of the place names also. A knowledge of Elvish is therefore vital to any Norrathian scholar.
