356Re: Devanagari: An Inspiration for the Tengwar?
- Dec 15, 2001Well, what we call Hebrew (the script) is only one of many scripts the
speakers of Hebrew have used from ancient Egyptian times to recent. To
include the same used for Arabic (modern), as well as Aramaic (the
original script they used was more closed in form, and they adopted
the Aramaic form.
Diecritical marks, well have been around for a while, mostly in lingos
like Arabic and Hebrew as ways to show vowels and like that are often
not needed by fluent readers of the above lingos.
From memory diacritical marks for Hebrew/Arabic were not used much
until sometime after the 16th century (I forget when).
aka Morgoth, I like how it rolls of the tongue. And from what I can
tell, it means like "Dark" "Goth(person)".
