355Re: Devanagari: An Inspiration for the Tengwar?
- Dec 15, 2001Well, since JRRT was either born or raised until like age 10 (?) in
South Africa, and they have a large Indian population. I suspect he
had some aquaintence with it before he became a professor.
Sanskrit is more a syllybary than an alphabet. But I have noticed the
similiar look before. But from what I have read, there was a gentleman
in England some 20 years before Tolkien that had an Alphabet that was
almost exectly in form to Tengwar, maybe not in values.
