Sorry I didn't answer until now. Quenya is not really my *thing*, but I
can transliterate into Quenya, and I have some Quenya calligraphy
published online. The best online Quenya dictionary/wordlist that I have
found is Quettaparma Quenyanna,
. I don't
know what you mean by 'literal spelling' or 'all of its different
divisions'. The entries in the QQ are in Roman letters ... there is no
online dictionary where the words are in the Tengwar ... so you'll have
to transliterate. We here can help you with that. BTW, what is the
'Word' you want?
A note about using cursive Tengwar: unless the inscription you want has
a fair number of ascenders and descenders, cursive Tengwar will lose its
effectiveness. It works well for the Ring inscription because the Black
Speech uses a lot of stops and spirants. I once transcribed something
for a friend (I don't remember what the sentence was) who insisted that
it be in cursive Tengwar style. All of the Tengwar to be used were of
Grades 5 and 6 plus a few of the extra letters, so it lacked the flowing
ascenders and descenders. He exclaimed, "That doesn't look like the
letters of the Ring Inscription!" Well, it didn't contain the letters
that gave the Ring inscription its distinctive look. Just something to
keep in mind when choosing a calligraphy style.
Cuio mae, Danny.
