It is a "slavery spell" written with Tengwar (or Elvish Letter/Script)
but it is in the Balck Specch of Sauron, not in Quenya or Sindarin,
the tongues of the Elves used in "The Lord of the Rings".
Ash nazg... etc.

about what is Elvish or Elvish script.

wrote in "The Lord of the Rings, appendix E".
So, "tengwar" is a High-elvish or Quenya word meaning "letters".
