I'm about to create a stub article for "Neo-Sindarin". Would it be better to have an inclusive article for all (that is, the best or most well-known) attempts to create standardized and/or expanded versions of any of Tolkien's invented languages? Perhaps the best name for such an article would be "Neo-Elvish", but it would it be good to be able to include "Neo-Black Speech" and "Neo-Orkish" as well (which, perhaps, still could be included in such an article).--Morgan 16:53, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

I've seen it called Neo-Eldarin. I don't think there's much notable Neo-BS, other than the Olympic verse and the movie stuff. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 22:48, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
I would also agree to an inclusive article. Neo-Elvish seems to be preferable, while Neo-Eldarin seems to be too technical. Under the umbrella of "Elvish" one may refer to Tolkien's languages in general such as Khuzdul or BS (cf. the book An Introduction to Elvish which isn't limited to the Elvish languages).
BTW I think "Neo-Eldarin" was first used by Fauskanger when he created such an article in Wikipedia discussing the matter and its controversies. Of course, it was removed from Wikipedia as it was actually an essay and not an encyclopedic (as Wikipedia qualifies it) article, but I think it was salvaged here. Sage 12:32, 25 June 2011 (UTC)
I created the article Neo-Elvish to encompass all what Neo-Quenya says and several more. I suggest we put a redirect from Neo-Quenya to Neo-Elvish. Sage 15:50, 25 June 2011 (UTC)
