      I notice that _Parma Eldalamberon_ Number 14 has been mentioned in
      recent posts here, so I would like to provide detailed information for
      Elfscript members.

      ---------------------
      PARMA ELDALAMBERON 14
      -------------------------------------------------------
      EARLY QENYA and The VALMARIC SCRIPT by J. R. R. TOLKIEN
      -------------------------------------------------------

      This issue has three sections containing newly published writings by
      J. R. R. Tolkien. Of particular interest to Elfscript members will be
      the section on "The Valmaric Script", edited by Arden R. Smith. There
      is also a section of "Early Qenya Fragments", edited by Patrick Wynne
      and Christopher Gilson; and the "Early Qenya Grammar", edited by Carl
      F. Hostetter and Bill Welden. Each of these has been prepared with
      the guidance of Christopher Tolkien and with the permission of the
      Tolkien Estate.

      "The Valmaric Script" is an edition of various documents relating to
      an Elvish writing system devised by Tolkien in the 1920s. One example
      of the script has been published already in a drawing for the story
      _Roverandom_. This edition incudes various charts of the sounds
      represented by the letters, tracing Tolkien's experimentation with
      their forms and applications. There are also examples of the Valmaric
      script used for writing both Qenya and English, including an excerpt
      from the Old English poem _Beowulf_. Transcriptions of these texts
      and commentary on the chronology of the documents and their conceptual
      evolution are included in this edition.

      "Early Qenya Fragments" is a collection of Tolkien's tables and
      name-lists associated with _The Book of Lost Tales_, including early
      names of the Days of the Elvish Week and the Valinorian Fortnight, and
      names of the Valar and various Creatures of the Earth, as Tolkien
      conceived of them in his earliest mythology. Also included are
      paradigms of the Regular Qenya Verb conjugation associated with the
      _Qenya Lexicon_.

      "Early Qenya Grammar" includes early writings on Qenya Phonology,
      together with the earliest complete Qenya Grammar, describing the
      forms and inflections of the Article, Nouns, Adjectives, Adverbs,
      Numbers, Pronouns, and Verbs. Both of these texts date from the 1920s.
      Annotations and commentary are provided for all of the Early Qenya
      texts, detailing their interconnections and the evolution of the
      linguistic conceptions contained within them.
