Now, I've very appreciated your explaining. I think it's better than your
behaviour before this last post.
I've said that it was a "Sindarin" text only because I supposed that my
girlfriend had a little knowledge
on this linguistic topic (but, however, now I'm thinking I'm wrong.).
Was not my intention to start a linguistic dibate on this ML in wich it's
quite OT, but I've started considering
the tengwar side of the phrase, so anything was put out during this
discussion was not my fault.
I'll sent your response to the author of the phrase.
I'm working on a correct version. so,
