Robert wants just a transcription because he's used an English
sentence, it was much easier and "quicker" to answer him first. This
group concerns writing systems, many of its members have no (or very
small) knowledge of Professor's languages (I myself have a very
little knowledge of Quenya). That's why I'm actually not able to help
back concerning the Quenya (translation from English -> Quenya) and
that means that the transcription itself might be in principle
incorrect in case the translation is incorrect. Do you get my

definite article THE in the lattest sentence (_i_) but it lacks the
conjuction AND (_ar_). It may be just a slip from your part, huh? :)
On the other hand, Tolkien gives us _Moriquendi_ as 'The Dark Elves',
literally 'The Dark Ones' and if one supposes to make a singular of
this, which would in English yield 'The Dark One', it would BMVHO be
*_moriquen_ in Quenya. Concerning the translation, I would rather
recommend to contact the Elfling group:

If you're transcribing a Quenya sentence then you have to use
Quenya "mode" on the tengscriber. Well, I think there is no need to
glut you with information about how the Tengwar works, so here are
the "codes" you can copy & paste into your word editor and change the
font to a Tengwar font:
5^,F 'family' _nosse_
`B 7~B5# `C6 t^65# z~V5 'the crowned and dark one' _i rína ar morna
quén_ (for omitting the AND _ar_, just withdraw the `C6).
But since I am not sure about the Quenya sentence I'd rather
recommend to wait for some Elfling help.
