This is a Swadesh list of basic words in Neo-Quenya. Unfortunately, some of the English words in the list do not have their Quenya equivalents known at this time, although more are likely to be found in as yet unreleased material. Diaereses are not shown here, being optional. Quenya verbs are shown as their stems (such as tul- "come").

This list contains a lot of words not attested in Tolkien's works but rebuilt or dreamt up, this article is not to consider as verity.
