 About the Elvish Language - The Lord of the Rings Online™: Shadows of Angmar™ Forums
In discussing the languages Tolkien invented, it is necessary to consider two aspects: their "primary world" history, namely their literal development by Tolkien as a linguist, and their "secondary world" history, namely their imagined historical development in the history of Middle-earth.
Tolkien was a professor of language and as such he had a vast history with the languages and dialects of various European cultures.
Remember, language is a complex beast composed of phonemic units functioning within phonological rulesets which are employed to construct morphemes which undergo morphological variations in order to supply the necessary elements needed to fulfil the syntactical rules under which the language functions.

 languagehat.com: September 2004 Archives
Bill Poser at Language Log has a wonderful post laying out the basics of historical linguistics that should be required reading for anyone even thinking about pontificating on the field, and it should be memorized by anyone actually working in it.
Let them write their querulous plaints about how everything is going to hell in a handbasket if they must, but languages are (as always) in the hands of those who use them, and prosper best when they benefit from the attentions of writers who use them particularly well, by which I do not mean academicians.
When people with no common language are thrown into contact, they often develop an ad hoc language known to linguists as a pidgin, usually derived from one of the parent languages.
