**The way that the tengwar indicate the aspirate is by extended the telco or
stem both up and down. Examples appear in the ring inscription in the first
volume. This sound is found in the Black Speech, but doesn't occur in
English, Quenya or Sindarin. The extension of the stem is not really curly
except in so far as the letters are formed gracefully. It is also quite
close to vertical.
**One of the small, more or less horizontal curls which indicate following s
appear in the word hobbits, the last word in the inscription on the title
page (as you saw).
