Primitive Quendian was the original language of the Elves (the "Quendi"), first spoken soon after their Awakening at Cuiviénen.

After the Sundering of the Elves, the primitive form of Quendian was split into Common Eldarin and the many Avari languages.


The etymologies published in The Lost Road and Other Writings among with other, later, etymological essays, would derive terms from the Eldarin languages to the Primitive Quendian base. A Primitive Quendian word list may be found in Quendi and Eldar, an essay found in The War of the Jewels. Material has also been featured in the posthumous series Parma Eldalamberon.
