      -------------------------
      The ALPHABET OF RÚMIL and
      EARLY NOLDORIN FRAGMENTS
      by J. R. R. TOLKIEN
      -------------------

      This issue has two sections of
      writings by J. R. R. Tolkien:
      "The Alphabet of Rumil"
      edited by Arden R. Smith; and
      "Early Noldorin Fragments" edited
      by Christopher Gilson, Bill Welden,
      Carl F. Hostetter, and Patrick Wynne.
      Both of these have been prepared
      with the guidance of Christopher
      Tolkien and with the permission of
      the Tolkien Estate.

      The Rúmilian Sarati are the earliest of the Elvish writing systems
      devised by Tolkien, ultimately envisioned as the historical
      precursor to the Feanorian Tengwar, the Elvish script seen in
      The Lord of the Rings. "The Alphabet of Rúmil" is an edition
      of Tolkien's Rúmilian writings, with examples of the script
      reproduced in facsimile, including charts of the sounds
      represented by the letters, and both Elvish and English
      texts written in Rúmilian.

      Transcriptions of these texts and detailed commentary on the
      chronology of the documents and evolution of the conception
      of the writing system are included in this edition.

      "Early Noldorin Fragments" is a collection of Tolkien's word-lists
      and grammatical descriptions of the Noldorin language from the
      1920s. These trace the evolution the language from its beginnings
      as the Goldogrin of the "Gnomish Lexicon" to its conception
      as the Exilic Noldorin that would appear in "The Etymologies".
      The fragments include:

      Heraldic Devices of Tol Erethrin
      Goldogrin Pronominal Prefixes
      Early Chart of Names
      The Official Name List
      The Gnomish Lexicon Slips
      Early Noldorin Grammar
      Noldorin Word-Lists
      Noldorin Dictionary

      These writings reveal the emergence of significant conceptual
      details, such the use of vowel mutation to mark Noldorin
      plural nouns, and the place of Old Noldorin in the internal
      history of the language. Detailed annotations and commentary
      on these conceptual developments in the documents are
      included in this edition.
