follow traditional spelling; it is completely phonemic. In that mode,
nasal vowels are represent by placing the appropriate ómatehta over
the tengwa 'nwalme'. ('noldo' wold also be a logical choice, but in this
mode it is used for '-gn-' = [nj].) Ryszard Derdzinski's Polish mode
uses the 'a' and 'e' tehtar over the long carrier to represented the
nasalised versions of these vowels. I have seen about six different
Portuguese modes, but only two of them are tehta modes; those two handle
the nasal vowels the same as the French mode I spoke of before, i.e. the
appropriate tehtar over 'nwalme'.
