I am making some updates in Quenta Eldatencelion :) I
am planning to put examples for each mode... doing
that, I realised that Certhas Daeron was used for Old
Sindarin (Helge first suggested it in his article and
I seem to agree). As you see the oldest cirth that
Tolkien gave in Appendix E are clean sounds, the only
sounds that OS has. The cirth for umlauted sounds must
be invented at the Sindarin period.
But then I ask: some say that the Certhas based on the
tengwar!! if yes then it couldnt be used for OS since
the Noldor came after the OS period. if it was indeed
used for OS then it was an indigenous system, invented
before the coming of the Noldor, but then how can we
explain the similarities between those systems?
I also want to ask: the older Certhas is called
Certhas Daeron. But the Certhas was invented by the
Sindar. Much later Daeron made an extended alphabet
known as Angerthas Daeron. So why that old version is
called certhas DAERON? :)
if there was an evolution of the type certhas >
certhas daeron > angerthas daeron I would like to ask
if anybody knows which were the exact alterations
between certhas and certhas daeron??
sorry for the long mail, and thank you for the help!
