Re: philosophy in transcribing English
- Alternate is to find out the actual sounds, and transcrib them as
It seems that JRR had a chart of the consonants and their place in the
mouth when he did the Tengwar, maybe base the characters on the chart?
When it comes to vowels and all, well have fun.. I prefer the
diacritical marks and all, but sometimes individual letters works.
Myself when it comes to spellings. Well English was Middle English,
until those who created dictionaries decided to enrich the lingo with
all those french words that they were to loss cause English had
finally won out over French. So go with good spelling versus how they
are spelled in the dictionaries for they (dictionaries) often have
little consistancy at times when it comes to spelling, most spelling
look more like they had some origin in French, even the English words
look like they are French. The spelling works great for French, but
loosy for English.
