      I think it's a better idea to go by J. R. R. Tolkien himself. In
      Appendix E of LotR he specifically states the name of the tegwa to be
      nwalme, formerly ngwalme. BTW, in Quenya both noldo and nwalme can
      only occur initially as far as we know.

      So would the correct word since I prefer sindarin be
      > TEITHO?

      _têw_ = tengwa (singular)
      _tîw_ = tengwar (plural)

      We understand this and are not trying to talk down to you. We commend
      you for your interest in learning the Tengwar and want to make sure
      that you learn what is correct to the best of our understanding.

      Cuio mae, Danny.
