      May I remind that Mr HKF is *not* a reincarnation of Pr Tolkien.

      Mr HKF was not abale to *learn* Quenya so as to be able to _translate_ from
      English to that language.
      To translate from one language to another you have to learn BOTH of them
      and be FLUENT (more or less).

      _Vanesse caita i tirno hendesse_ is *NOT* Quenya but a Home-made code.

      Enjoy "HKF-code" if you like it ! But DON'T call it Quenya fro it is not Quenya.
