if you have started your studying Tolkien's scripts and languages
with a translator and transcriber - I guess you have started all
wrong - and here no offence meant since I think it is a _wrong_
beginning. If you want to study Professor's work, start with the
books! They contain everything you need, the stuff on the internet
only 'parrots' what was already said there or (more or less
fortunately) summarizes what was writen by Professor. And it holds
mainly for the scripts so the step number one is the Appendix E in
the Return of the King, there is the genuine material you should
study. And of course, if you'd have any questions, we are ready to
answer them! :-)
