The vowel sounds are different from those specified by Tolkien, and I think some of the Tengwar have been misinterpreted. And yes, you do write phonetically, instead of following the letters exactly.What isn't accurate then Pere?
I saw somewhere that when you write English with Tengwar, you write the sounds not the letters.
Íven would be preferable, I think.Shouldn't that be íven or iven?
Yay! :DYey!! Pere is back!!
Tell me about it! I am Norwegian, so I know exactly how you feel. It is hard enough to spell the words, not to mention saying them and even worse when you have write what you are saying when you don't know if you are saying it right! And why can't those silly Englishmen/Americans just say the vowels as they are suppose to be? Luckily Quenya vowels are equal to our vowels. ;)but as Tengwar is based on the spelling of words it's difficult to write english texts in tengwar for me...
Because after your ancesters settled in England and contributed Saxon to that of the Angles' language, the Normans conquered it and they brought their French language. So now there were three languages, each with their own set of phonetics and words that were amalgamated into the bastardized language called English.And why can't those silly Englishmen/Americans just say the vowels as they are suppose to be?
