one used in KL-III (DTS 49), using series III for the calmatéma
like the Mode of Beleriand. But do we have any indications
that it exists? Or do we simply associate Sindarin so much
with the Mode of Beleriand that we presume that a tehta mode
*must* use series III for the calmatéma?
I'd love to see some good arguments (either for or against)
the use of series III in a tehta mode for sindarin!
