- Hi to all members!,I'm a new member.I have interested in the writing'ssystems of Middle-Earth, particularly to the tengwars, some years ago, then for lack of time I have had to stop.I have also developed a mode to write Italian (that I have used for copy to an examination without suspects; -))
In 1995 after I have seen a program of Måns Björkman (Tengwar Generator) I made a similar program in C.
It allows to "translate" from Roman letters to Tengwar and viceversa in 4 languages :
Italian; quenya; sindarin (tetha mode and beleriand mode) and black speech.
The program is configurabile: you can specify the variations that languages have had during the history that had also influenced the way to write
Bye and plz forgive me for my bad English.Marco
- Yeah.... I just joined, mainly becuase I wanted to learn Elvish, and
I figured I could get advice here, sort of like a study group. Like
my German, Japanese, and English classes have!!!
Well, any language advice would be helpful, thanks!! :)

only discuss the writing systems here. Welcome to Elfscript, in any case

- Hi everyone!
Just thought I'd introduce myself briefly: I'm a highschool senior
(with perhaps a little too much time on my hands) and I've recently
become intrigued by the writing systems of Tolkien. With the coming
out of the first LOTR movie I began reading the books, and liked them
very much, and I've spent the last couple weeks teaching myself to
transcribe English into the Elvish letters. I joined this list
obviously to glean what I can from the knowledge of others, and so I
can have some people to bug with a question if I get one.
P.S. What a great way to drive my siblings crazy, this
speaking/writing in Elvish!
