1020question about "y" word-initial
- Jul 1, 2002Here's a question:
Is there a way to transcribe the English "your" to the tehta mode of
tengwar? i've been doing some exercises in transcription just to get
the hang of the alphabets how tengwa are used together and have run
into a bit of a problem with this word. i know when you begin a word
with a vowel pronounced like "y" (such as an example i found,
"iarwain") you use a Yanta and then the next letter with the
appropriate tehta above. but can i do that with "your?" i tried that
and here's what i came up with: Yanta, vowel carrier with the "o"
tehta above, and Romen with the "u" tehta (i hope that makes sense, i
wish i could just write the word with my tengwar font). is that right
or have i started making up my own rules? ;') thanks....
