Tolkien's Languages
J.R.R. Tolkien, author of the Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, etc. was also a conlang fanatic, and developed several langauges for Elves and other races in his novels. See here for some technical articles. Another place to look: Tolkien language list home page. The Yamada language institute has collected together some Tolkien fonts. Another source of Elvish languages: Lisa McBriety's pages
The IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) is a universal way of writing down the sounds of languages. Unfortunately it's hard to use over the internet because you need a special set of characters. This is a way of transcribing the IPA into ASCII.
