The typical description for a half-elf discusses the inherited aspects of a human parent and elven parent, discounting that many half-elves are the product of two half-elven parents. After all, it's commonly written that half-elves fit in with neither a human nor an elven society, so it would make sense that half-elves stick together and marry/have children. (Though I'd imagine that human societies would be more welcoming of half-elves than elven societies, which tend to shun outsiders.)
