and the attached 's' hook. In the Brogan Christmas Greeting, on which
we're basing much of this dicussion, the final 's' of 'Christmas' is
written as a hook attached to the preceding malta, and in the Edwin
Lowdham Manuscripts we find the 's' in AS 'facnes' as a hook attached to
the preceding númen. And in some of the full writing English modes we
even see the 's' hook attached to vowel tengwar! Apparently the 's'
doesn't have to immediately follow another consonant to 'qualify' as an
accompanying tehta. A separate silme wouldn't be wrong, but I don't
believe it's absolutely necessary.
Cuio mae, Danny.
