What exactly is the purpose of elf ears?

What exactly is the purpose of elf ears? In pretty much any fantasy setting, the elf races are basically just humans with bigger ears, and that's really about it. Any lorefag autists here care to explain what kind of developmental purpose having pointy ears would be to elves?

        The theme of pure blood being stronger is well established in many religions and definitely in Tolkien's work. From the first people in the Bible living 900-odd years, to the men of good Numenorian stock being bigger, wiser and with greater lifespans than other men. Purity of blood is an important thing.

        You don't need to believe an appearance is genetically superior just because it's beautiful. Anglos and all other Germanics considered Scandis to be actual fucking subhumans because they were the only ones chimping out and living in mudhuts while everyone else was civilizing, and Romans considered Germanics subhuman so if they thought this about Scandis you know it was because they were real morons.
        Yet despite this, Germanics believed Scandinavians were the most beautiful tribe in Europe.

    Elves are rapebait, but sometimes they're too self-aware of this and cut their hair short so you can't hold on to it.

    Long and pointy eared Elves are an invention of victorian era english literature.
    Actual historic Germanic Pagans regarded Elves as their Ancestors. They used the term Elf to describe their Ancestors, who were buried in burrow mounds for example. They also used the term for Nature Spirits.

    Elves are a promise. We were once Elves and with enough eugenic breeding we might be able to become Elves again. Elves are idealized white people after all.

        The "meds" didn't create western civilization. Aryans did. Aryans are a warrior-race and the ancestors of every single european culture. Germanics, Celts, Latins, Greeks and Slavs are all Aryans. They all started out as barbarians. But the Aryans, who took over Persia, India, the Middle East, Anatolia or Italy of course either created civilization or took it over from the people there.

        So Romans and Germans came from the same root and have no reason to feel jealous of each other. Germans managed to take over the Western Half of the Roman Empire after all, when it became degenerate and mixed their aryan core out of existence and became the new nobility. Knights, Kings, guess what they are. They are all without exception ancestors of the "barbaric" Germans, who invaded Rome. There is an unbroken line.

          "elf" in norse mythology is either being used as a synonym for dwarf, or for god, except for one instance where its used to refer to a finn. Tolkien 100% created elves as a distinct "race" unto themselves.

            Wrong, elves were a race in norse mythology and were considered beautiful, magical and all the shit Tolkien portrayed them as, and most importantly, distinct from dwarves.

                your anecdote only proves that tolkien didn't invent the word elf, which was never in contention in the first place. What's in contention is whether there is a concept of a discrete elven race that predates tolkien, which you haven't provided any evidence for (because it doesn't exist)

It's not wrong to be unknowledgeable, Anon, no one starts out knowing everything about a thing, but you do have to put in the work to educate yourself. Tolkien didn't invent elves, he didn't invent them being magical and beautiful, he didn't invent them being a distinct race from men, all of that predates him and had been an evolving idea for centuries in many european cultures. The only thing he really did was build up a culture and functional language for his version of elves, which is still a phenomenal achievement.

                I've read the poetic edda front to back, and I've also read several icelandic sagas. There is never any indication in these that elves are a discrete race unto themselves. You're insisting they are, though, so I'm asking where you're getting this idea from, because its obviously not part of norse canon.

                The definitive ending to this discussion is that this subject is far more complicated that you will even begin understanding you fucking retard.

                But just for illustration. Within germanic-language folkloristic sources, the term elf is repeatedly used to describe beings of following forms:
                A tiny humanoid beings with insectoid features, associated with pure or clean natural environment (forests, parks etc...) and usually very hedonistic, sensual inclinations.
                A race of underground dwelling beings (originally usually similar to humans in composition, later being associated with smaller and stout figures) associated with mountains and their natural wealth (gems, metals etc...)
                A malevolent night-time associated with sleep-related pathologies - beings that feed on human dreams, causing nightmares, literally sitting on human chests causing shortness of breath during night.
                A solitary wild-life female creatues known for kindnapping children.
                Literally every possible variety of household spirit, from the prankster archetype to the protector one.
                A humans that have been cursed with invisibility (hidden folk).
                A divine beings of pure light, associated with with celestial realms and formative processes of ontogenesis.
                And literally about 200 other different mythological archetypes that I can't be bothered to list anymore.

                YOU HAVE NO FUCKING CLUE HOW COMPLICATED THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN MYTHOLOGICAL ARCHETYPES AND THE FUCKING WORDS TO LABEL THEM THEMSELVES ACTUALLY ARE.

                >„Sá er einn staðr þar, er kallaðr er Álfheimr. Þar byggvir fólk þat, er Ljósálfar heita, en Dökkálfar búa niðri í jörðu, ok eru þeir ólíkir þeim sýnum ok miklu ólíkari reyndum. Ljósálfar eru fegri en sól sýnum, en Dökkálfar eru svartari en bik.“

                Literally copied from the Edda. The (light) elves are a folk/race from elfheim,more beautiful than the sun. So, they have the same name as Tolkiens elves, they're pale/bright, they're a distinct race and they're very beautiful. That's four things they have in common so the claim that elves never existed before Tolkien or that Tolkiens elves are not the same elves as from folklore is a flat out lie.

                Complete butchering of both the translation and the further implications. "the More beautiful than sun" actually can be also translated more accurately as "brighter than sun". Meaning these could be - and in some interpretations literally are - described as beings of pure light. The same text also postulates another race: Dark one, consuming dirt and being based on a maggot archetype. They are also called elves in that same text.

                Look up the concept "Hidden People" - made particularly well known through Islandic folkloristic - often known as Huldufólk. Authors like Árnason should be your first port of call, and if you want more academic perspective, his dozens and dozens of commentators.

                My personal islandic version of their origin stories are one in which God tells Adam and Eve that he is going to visit them, to see how they are doing after being kicked out of Heaven.
                Eve tries to clean up their home and wash her kids as to not look incompetent, but she does not manage to wash all of them in time, so she hides the dirty ones to not embarass them.
                When the God visits, he asks if the children he sees are all of their kids, and Eve lies that yes, those are all of them.
                So God punishes them for lying my making all the kids she hid forever invisible.

                Or even funnier version: Eve tells Adam that she has a headache and won't have sex with him one day. So Adam goes to the forest, and helps himself, squirting the stuff into a ditch.
                The semen still creates people, but those people are invisible.

                Those are just annecdotes (all from Árnason I believe), but I just love them so I thought I'd share. Obviously - these origin tales are later-date than the concept of hidden folk, a result of an older mythological archetype being "married" with new Christian beliefs overlapping them.

                And yes - I can't remember any examples outside of Iceland, but you'll have to believe me, those exists outside of it - even northern germany, and yes, the word "elf" is used.

                And another small fact: Even Tolkien isn't consistent in his image of elves. The ones in Hobbit are vastly different from the ones in Silmarilion. You can see how he started with the model most popular in anglo-saxon pop-culture of that era, the "puk" model, the one you see in say, Midsummer's Night Dream - and then gradually drifted away from it in later works.

                It would seem that elf is like an umbrella term for non-human beings in general in norse myth than a descriptor for any specific non-human. Later on, during the period when christians were writing norse fanfictions, they started trying to codify them as their own thing with their translation work, which is how we progressed to the modern depiction of elves, which ended up being heavily influenced by Tolkien's work solidifying it in the public consciousness. If I recall, what we'd consider elf-like beings were at one point being called dwarves, or some earlier root word in old german that doesn't come to mind immediately.

                Unfortunately, even that explanation is misleadingly reductive.
                The reality is that reality does not actually respect our systems. It's a term that meant vastly different things for vastly different concepts, though there are certain "focal points" that are slightly more prominent than others. It's not an "umbrella" term, it's that folklore does whatever it fucking wants and does not gives a shit about symmetries and classical definitions we happen to crave.

                There are terms, and there are archetypes. Terms travel and jump from archetype to archetype locally, and archetypes themselves are fluid and in state of constant transformation. It's a system that is incredibly difficult to wrap your head around, and that is why I take issue with people who pretend they understand it.

                The prosaic edda specifically talks about Ljósálfar (you don't need to be a old norse to identify ljós with the same root as illuminos, and dokk with the same root as dark, and both having the root alfar - one of the older version of "elf".

                What the fuck is your diagnosis, this goes beyond garden variety stupidity.

                or

                He found that one citation, that is literally all that he has to base everything in his claim on. He does not know what it means - he just found that line of norse and some lazy, wrong translation - he based his belief on that PURE TWO FUCKING LINES OF TEXT HE DOES NOT UNDERSTAND - and because he is a narcissitic, delusional psychopath, he just assumed that is all he'll ever know and that he is unquestionably right about everything.

                All evidence leads to the same result, elf means white. Historians agree and even today, in most Germanic languages(specifically Scandinavia and German speaking countries) the word elf is synonymous with white. Example: ivory is called "elven legs" those countries, because they're long and white.

                So far, I have seen zero evidence that elf means anything other than white and I don't understand why this makes you seethe so uncontrollably. You'd probably be happier if you read African folklore instead.

                It's not armchair psychology to state that person that continuously lies in face of absolutely undeniable evidence of his own lies is actually seriously mentally ill. If you cannot admit your lies when there is absolutely objective evidence of it directly presented to you, it means that you are not actually acknowledging reality as reality, that you literally do not know where you are, or what and why you are saying, and/or that you cannot process that other people are as real as you are. That is a fact.

                It is not armchair psychology to conclude that when eventually breaking, your next response is to start screeching incoherently about morons that part of your functionally, OBJECTIVELY BROKEN mental state is a complete and uncontrollable obsession with black people and race in general.
                And that makes you literally unfit to exist in civic society, as your perception of reality cannot be aligned with that of real humans, nor can you be expected to behave in predictable and socially acceptable fashion.

                These claims are as obvious and undeniable as the evidence of your previous previous lies. And let me assure you - it's a miracle you got away for this long. They will come for you - the only question is if they'll lock you up before you harm someone, or before.

                False. The word "elf" already means white/white being and "brighter than the sun" in this context refers to them being beautiful. Also, stop moving the goalpost. The original claim was that elves did not exist before Tolkien or that Tolkiens elves have nothing in common with elves from Germanic folklore, and that claim is FALSE so fuck off and die.

                Literally copied from the Edda. The (light) elves are a folk/race from elfheim,more beautiful than the sun. So, they have the same name as Tolkiens elves, they're pale/bright, they're a distinct race and they're very beautiful. That's four things they have in common so the claim that elves never existed before Tolkien or that Tolkiens elves are not the same elves as from folklore is a flat out lie.

    There's really no real answer apart from elves having sharper, more defined features than humans in general, including their ears. What a lot of visual content fails to portray equally is that they should have sharper jaws and more prominent cheekbones as well, elves are pretty much supposed to be angular in a "pleasing" way, but it always looks bad when drawn, so they just stick with the ears slender body.

    Elves are for enslavement and breeding.

          Point being that breeding with elves just results in more human-likes, and not more elves. I always thought it was odd that settings with immortal elves in them weren't already overrun with the buggers since they never die from natural causes. They always meme that they die in battle a lot or just don't breed as often and that's why there isn't a breedable elf for every square meter of space.

            Just make them naturally far less fertile than every other race. Also throw on the common trope where they also take far longer to reach maturity in comparison to every other race, so not only is it difficult to get pregnant but you're gonna be raising your kid for decades upon decades before they're ready to leave the nest. Elves should be quality, not quantity. Which is why elven mates are so coveted.

      They generally suffer from ennui from their long lives as well, and need fresh experiences, or to travel alongside one who isn't long lived, to keep them from becoming despondent and all the issues that come with that when you're immortal and have demi-god like powers.

      Academia almost entirely. Though there is a lot of of interesting overlaps with with fields like archeology, in some isolated cases cooperation between folkloristics and molecular biologists have yielded some really great results.

      With that said, you don't usually go to study folkloristics specifically, it's just one form of specific interest which you reach while studying a broader discipline.
      Social Anthropology, Religious Studies, Literary Studies or even General Linguistics or Filology are usually the are from which folklorists are "recruited".
