    Boo yah. Gwestol? Is one of the first examples of a questioning conjugation if you happen to have been a large enough nerd to get the Sindarin grammar book….

    I’m detecting a theme here….

    Last one I think is Welsh? The others are Elvish…

      I knew when I posted this that you would enjoy it.

      And yes, the last one is the only Welsh expression.

      1) Elvish – Do you speak Elvish?
      2) Elvish – Do you promise?
      3) Welsh – The Eagles are coming.

        Definitely appreciating the theme! Makes me feel better for not having been able to go to any trivia this week!

    Only know the first two so I assume the third is Welsh.
