One thing I try to do when designing a script for a lingo
like English, is does the letters flow. Can it be written by
a person in a hurry, how fast will the script become
illegible cause people write it to fast.. Will the script be
a one that you use on monuments, or one that you use for
Ligatures for one, how easy is it to do them?
Roman Capitals, are often seen on monuments, written in
stone, and they fit it quite well. Some discussion of why
scripts often started right to left, cause it was easier to
carve them in stone that way.. While pen written forms are
easier to do when from the left to right. Lighting for one,
as well as pen movement and other factors.
Is there a cursive form of Tengwar? Cirth? There has been
some examples of majescule/upper case Tengwar, but not
I can easily design a cursive form of Cirth, or one less
designed for stone/wood carving.
Fun ones are ones that are written in a way other than the
standard English/Roman way. Like Chinese/Japanese, that
start right to left, and top and down.. Or Top left, and
then down, and then next line is right of the last line..
Like some forms of Uighur and like is done..
Arabic calligraphy can be fun, cause you often use the
letters to form animal forms and like. How easy does Tengwar
or like lend itself to being used like this..
Other forms of use, pen vs brush vs chisel vs stick
(cuniform) and like.
But most importanlly, does the script fit the needs of the
lingo that it is to be used for?
English is one of the hardest lingo to learn how to spell,
but easy to learn how to speak (for many that is). Do you
stick with English spelling, or invent your own, and how
does the script look when done.. Does it look like a jumble
of letters, and sort of ugly, or does it flow. If you write
it for hours, will your hands be locked up in pain, or will
they be happy.
Can you make a brush form of Tengwar? Possible. Would look
