      first of all, thanks to Hísilómë, Gildor Inglorion, Calwen 76 and Danny.
      So, this unexpected clarification will permit me to terminate my work.
      I will use probably the “long carrier mode”, given that the “double tehta
      mode” had a complication:
      the vowel _a_ can’t be doubled on a tengwa (or on a carrier), since it’s
      composed by 3 dots.
      I think that the long carrier mode will be more clear and directly
      understandable and I want to unify
      the method I’ll use: probably writing all the long vowels but _a_ with
      double tehtar and only the _a_ with a long carrier could appear
      So, long life to the “long carrier mode”! ;)

      An example where Tolkien (J.R.R., not Christopher) did represent "e"
      with the dot and "i" with the acute would be the Brogan Tengwar
      Greetings (the first of the two tengwar texts, which is written in an
      orthographic tehtar mode).
