- I love tilde questions:
Now when I write tengwar and run across double letters I always use
the under-tilde to express the second letter. Is this consistant
because in some instances they are written out.

out in full is the 'll' in _mellon_ on the Doors of Durin. This is in
the mode of Beleriand. In all other attested modes which exhibit double
consonants (except JRRT's Old English modes), the under-tilde or
under-bar is used. In the Old English modes, two small diagonal strokes
form the double consonant tehta. In the KL mode for English, the
under-tilde is even used under vowels to indicate doubling (e.g. 'see').
