7[elfscript] Norwegian mode
- Mar 21, 2000Well, here I go again with another attempt at a norwegian mode, this
time after talking with some native speakers (I love Norway!!).
First, the vowels, as far as I know they're: æ, ø, a, e, i, y, u, å and
o (this last one as in 'hvor', not as in 'for', which is the same as å).
The tehtar would be:
a (three dots)
e (acute accent)
i (one dot)
å (curl open to the right)
o (curl open to the left)
y (two under dots)
æ (two over dots)
ø (the tehta that looks somewhat like a tilde ~ in Lowdham's report
(there used for 'y', I think))
u (two acute accents below the tengwa)
I also thought of using one under dot for when the 'e' is final or
sounds in that way, but maybe we have enough tehtar to remember with
The consonants are: t, d, n, r, s, p, b, f, m, v, k, g, h, j, l, kj
(also written tj), skj (also written sj and rs).
And my proposal is:
t p k kj
d b g skj
r rs l
I'm not sure about the placing in general and of kj and skj in
particular, but I think this should work.
