      Was recently recommended to this group by Uialdil.

      Translating and writing "grace" in Quenya, urgently need positive
      confirmation:

      translation (to Quenya):
      grace = "Eruanna" (Eru = god + anna = gift)

      calligraphy (Tengwar):
      =======================
      [short carrier + e tehta] [romen + u tehta] [short carrier + a tehta]
      [double númen + a tehta + underbar tilde]
      =======================

      Hantalyë (Thank You)!

        Exactly right. One suggestion: write the first tengwa, the short carrier,
        larger than the other tengwar in the word. Tolkien used majuscules for
        proper names in his tengwar documents and he certainly would have used a
        capital for a reference to Eru.

        Also, if writing the tehtar in a different colour from the tengwar, write
        the enlarged short carrier with the same colour as that of the tehtar, but
        write the 'e' tehta in the same colour as the other tengwar. This follows
        Tolkien's usage in his calligraphy for 'Nam�ri�' in RGEO.

        Cuio mae, Danny.
