Two Towers Extended DVD Title Menu Transcription
- I tried deciphering this the other day, just because I could :)
Quenya style: read consonant then vowel on top.
'the' is rendered as extended Ando.
Line 1: the worl [missing 'd'] is changing [: used as full stop].
[next few tengwar are a bit unclear: Aha I assume = 'wh' ,then
what looks like 'o' or 'u' with inderdot? I read this in context as:]

Tolkien translated 'full of grace' ('gratia plena') as _quanta Eruanno_

name in Sindarin! What a coincidence :)
