well, but what I could make out looked right except for one thing: the
'h' at the beginning of _hlápua_ and _hláralye_ should be written as
halla instead of hyarmen.
"For breath h Quenya originally used a
simple raised stem without bow, called halla 'tall'. This could
be placed before a consonant to indicate it was unvoiced and
breathed; voiceless r and i were usually so expressed and are
transcribed hr, hl." (LotR, Appendix E)
