“Come, you must see this for yourself!” Celebrían dragged Elrond along to the tree where their sons were engrossed in a game.

At first, she had been thrilled when they started talking at such a young age. But soon surprise, and then apprehension, had set in: while the twins clearly were using words and whole sentences, she couldn't understand anything.

“Is something wrong with them?”, she worried, “They don't seem to use any normal words.”

Elrond smiled, looking proudly at his sons. “No, everything is fine. Twins often invent their own language. They'll learn ours just as easily.”
