Hum, où je pratique moi ?
Hmm, where do I practice?

Depuis que j'ai reçu mon diplôme, c'est un processus beaucoup moins formel.
Since I finished college, it's been a much less formal process.

Je regarde des vidéos en français sur Youtube et je saisis chaque opportunité de voir un film français au cinéma.
I watch French Youtube videos, and I take every chance to see a French film at the movies.

La production orale est plus difficile à pratiquer, car il n'y a pas beaucoup de groupes de conversation français près de chez moi, mais j'ai l'habitude de parler tout seul en français.
Speaking is more difficult to practice because there aren't a ton of French conversation groups where I live, but I often talk to myself in French.

J'ai pas trop de mal à pratiquer l'écriture parce que j'ai toujours été doué pour ça, peu importe la langue.
I don't have much difficulty practicing writing because I've always had a knack for it, whatever the language.

لا مارست في هدولاك الموضوع بسبب مهارتي في لغة الحقيقية سيئة و كثير من ناس هنا يقدرون يقدرون يتكلمون تلك اللغة فصيحا. لما أجرب إستخدامه ، فجملتي تصبح ترجمة مباشرة بس
I don't practise in those threads because I'm not good at natlangs and there are many people here that can speak that language proficiently. Whenever I try to speak it, it just ends up being a relex anyway.

Note: I'm assuming you meant languages that we are learning, not other natlangs that we are already fluent in (native/bilingual etc).

Je trouve que parler avec soi-même est excellent pour pratiquer.
I think that speaking to yourself is excellent for practice.

Qu'est-ce que tu veux dire avec ça?
What do you mean by this?

Oui, c'est correct. Quelle(s) langue(s) voudrais-tu pratiquer?
Yes, that's correct. What language(s) would you like to practice?

Que les compétences nécessaires pour bien écrire s'accordent avec ma façon de penser.
That the skills involved in writing well match the way I think.

La bonne orthographe, l'attention aux détails grammaticaux, un œil pour le style …
Good spelling, attention to grammatical details, an eye for style …

La reconnaissance que le dictionnaire est mon meilleur ami.
The understanding that the dictionary is my best friend.
[xD]

Alors le maintien de mon niveau d'écrit français n'exige pas autant de pratique que celui des autres compétences linguistiques.
So I don't need as much practice to keep up my French writing level as I do for the other language skills.

Ce moment où tu tentes de te rappeler les paroles d'une chanson finnoise et que tu insères par accident un mot en quenya. #problèmesdeconlangueur
That moment when you're trying to remember the words to a Finnish song and you accidentally throw in a Quenya word. #conlangerproblems

But aren't the Finnish also elves?

Eux et les Gallois, selon Tolkien.
Them and the Welsh, according to Tolkien.

Malheureusement, ma substitution n'a pas très bien marché au niveau du sens.
Unfortunately, my substitution didn't work that well meaning-wise.

Je voulais dire « kunpa », qui signifie « si seulement », mais au lieu de ça, j'ai dit « untúpa », ou « couvrir ».
I was looking for "kunpa", which means "if only", but instead I said "untúpa", or "to cover".

Selon Tolkien, qui sont les dökkalfir? Quelle nationalité les représente??
According to Tolkien, who are the dark-elves? Which nationality represents them??

A-t-il répondu à cette question?
Did he ever answer that question?

Je n'avais pas rencontré ce terme avant que tu ne le mentionnes, mais après quelques recherches, je trouve la réponse à ta question incertaine.
I hadn't come across that term before you mentioned it just now, but after a bit of research, I'm thinking the answer to your question is uncertain.

« Moriquendi » (elfes noirs) est un terme général qui fait référence à plusieurs groupes d'elfes.
"Moriquendi" (dark elves) is an umbrella term referring to several groups of elves.

Les Moriquendi comprennent les Sindar, dont la langue s'inspire du gallois, ainsi que les Avari et les Nandor.
The Moriquendi include the Sindar, whose language is inspired by Welsh, as well as the Avari and the Nandor.

On ne sait pas beaucoup sur les langues de ces deux derniers groupes.
Not much is known about the languages of the latter two groups.

On peut déduire des exemples que Tolkien a laissés, que ces langues sont fondées sur des langues indo-européennes différentes.
From the examples Tolkien has left one can infer that these languages are based on different Indo-European languages.

- La langue des Nandor ressemble au vieil anglais, avec le développement a > ea, e > eo / _l, r (*alkwā > ealc, *mizdē > meord) et la métaphonie (*lugni > lygn) dans toutes les deux langues.
- The Nandorin language resembles Old English, with the development a > ea, e > eo / _l, r (*alkwā > ealc, *mizdē > meord) and umlaut (*lugni > lygn) in both languages.

- La langue des Hwenti < *Kwendī a été affectée par la loi de Grimm.
- The language of the Hwenti < *Kwendī was affected by Grimm's law

- La langue des Kindi < *Kwendī ressemble aux langues satem, avec le développement kw > k.
- The language of the Kindi < *Kwendī resembles satem languages, with the development kw > k.

- Pour les autres, je dirais que Penni correspond au gaulois et Cuind à l'irlandais.
About others, I'd say that Penni corresponds to Gaulish and Cuind to Irish Gaelic.
