well, I guess mainly my idea is to, at least at first, get more people to simply pronounce the elvish, just by reading things.. whether they be things that they or others have written or what not. So that we can, you know, practice pronouncing it at the very least, if not the actual speaking of it.. But yeah, there are definitely pronunciation guides that have been left behind, and there are a few recordings of Tolkien himself reciting things he'd written. So we should be able to at least get an idea what it should sound like... anyway, I probably won't do it if I can't get anyone to submit stuff, since I kind of feel it should be sort of a group effort, with all sorts of different voices and what not.

I have listened to some of Tolkien's recordings of Elvish, and I know pronunciation guides would be helpful when used along with the recordings. There should definitely be a group involved - maybe a post on another site?
