"transcription") since the tengwar of those fonts

aren't placed according to their pronounciation, but

according to their place on the Tengwar Table of

Appendix E

so:

1=t (#1)

q=p (#2)

a=c (#3)

z=qu (#4)

so if you want to write _a_ in tengwar, you don't

press the key "a", since it corresponds to the tengwa

for _c_!!
