Welcome to the Black Speech School, the place where you can learn the language of Orcs, Nazgûls and other Mordor's inhabitants.

I advise you to start with Dialects page to understand where dictionaries and grammatic rules used in this site have come from.

Random quotation
“ The Orcs were first bred by the Dark Power of the North in the Elder Days. It is said that they had no language of their own, but took what they could of other tongues and perverted it to their own liking; yet they made only brutal jargons, scarcely sufficient even for their own needs, unless it were for curses and abuse. And these creatures, being filled with malice, hating even their own kind, quickly developed as many barbarous dialects as there were groups or settlements of their race, so that their Orkish speech was of little use to them in intercourse between different tribes.

LOTR III, Appendix F, Of other races, p. 1486

2019-02-21   Dictionary update


 

Horngoth pages were revisited and therefore Dictionary was updated with more than 200 new Horngoth word entries added, many corrected and few removed. A lot of etymology information was given too. Bugs in Online dictionary were fixed (again and I hope finally).

После пересмотра исходных страниц диалекта Horngoth в словарь было добавлено более 200 новых статей для этого диалекта, много исправлено и несколько удалено. Также появилось больше информации по этимологии многих слов. Ошибки с кодировкой в онлайн-словаре были исправлены (надеюсь на этот раз окончательно).


 

2018-04-05   Appleyard's Black Speech


 

Since A. Appleyard's Black Speech analysis became unreadable because it had lost file extension on it's host and was treated as HTML instead of raw text, I've decided to make a readable copy here at my site. View it.

Так как анализ Черной Речи от A. Appleyard'а стал нечитаемым из-за потери расширения файла на сервере, и трактовался как HTML вместо сырого текста, я решил сделать читаемую копию на своем сайте. Посмотреть.


 

2018-03-22   Zhâburi A and more


 

The Dictionary now features Zhâburi A dialect. And of course it was  filled with some new words too. Lessons were also corrected.
It was discovered that Online Dictionary was not functioning properly for a long time. All issues were fixed.

В Словаре теперь представлен диалект Zhâburi A. Конечно же, были добавлены и другие новые слова. Также внесены правки к некоторым Урокам.
Было обнаружено, что Онлайн-словарь работал некорректно уже очень долгое время (например поиск на русском выдавал перевод на английский). Все ошибки были устранены.

Nice. But a note on the verbs of the Zhâburi A. I adapted them for these lists so that they could be used with the other dialects. Zhâburi (both A and B versions) have different verb-suffixes for transitive and intransitive functions for the verbs, -a- for transitive and -u- for intransitive. So the Zhâburi A verb stem bar- have different meanings depending on suffix; barut "to sit" (intransitive) and barat "to put (in place)" (transitive). But this makes it difficult to use the words in other dialects. So I used derivative suffixes to mark this difference so bar- "to put in place" (Swedish: att sätta) (transitive); barn- "to sit down" (Swedish "att sätta sig"); bart- "to sit [continously]" (Swedish "att sitta"). So if you are interested in Zhâburi A please consult me by writing a comment on my site:
