Write English with Tengwar: A Workbook for English General Use [Spiral-Bound Edition]

$10.99

Want to write like an elf, but not learn a language? Then this book is for you! Welcome to General Use Tengwar, a mode Tolkien developed for using his Elven letters to write English. He used it to write the text on the title page of The Lord of the Rings, Christmas greetings to friends, and even secret messages to his fans. This isn’t just a book telling you what each symbol stands for; it teaches you to form them correctly and to be able to read what you’ve written. Furthermore, you’ll be learning tengwar not as though it is a code, but like a real-world writing system. The text even describes how to format documents. Whether you’re putting a powerful Elvish inscription on your magnificent sword or writing secret notes in class, this book will show you the way!

This edition is the ideal way to read and use this book. The spiral-binding allows for the book to lay open completely flat, so that the design, with the new tengwar to learn on the left and the exorcise testing your knowledge on the right can both be seen at once. Or, you could hide the tengwar you just learned for an extra level of difficulty.

Description

Want to write like an elf, but not learn a language? Then this book is for you!

Welcome to General Use Tengwar, a mode Tolkien developed for using his Elven letters to write English. He used it to write the text on the title page of The Lord of the Rings, Christmas greetings to friends, and even secret messages to his fans.

After J. R. R. Tolkien’s passing, many pieces of his essays and notes on his languages and writing systems were published, as well as some of his gorgeous tengwar manuscripts. Today there is more information to draw on than there ever was before. This workbook contains the latest research and discoveries made about tengwar, including a number system unknown until recently!

This isn’t just a book telling you what each symbol stands for; it teaches you to form them correctly and to be able to read what you’ve written. Furthermore, you’ll be learning tengwar not as though it is a code, but like a real-world writing system. The text even describes how to format documents.

Whether you’re putting a powerful Elvish inscription on your magnificent sword or writing secret notes in class, this book will show you the way!

About the Author:

Fiona Jallings has a BA in English-Linguistics and a minor in Japanese. She’s been studying Tolkien’s languages and writing systems since she was 15, when the first Lord of the Rings movie came out. She uses her linguistic knowledge to manage her website, RealElvish.net, which provides free phrasebooks and name translations in a handful of Tolkien’s languages.

She lives a quiet nerdy life in North-western Montana with her wife of many years, spending her free time taking photos of wildlife, sewing her own cosplay costumes, and talking to her cat Muior.

About this Edition:

This edition is the ideal way to read and use this book. The spiral-binding allows for the book to lay open completely flat, so that the design, with the new tengwar to learn on the left and the exorcise testing your knowledge on the right can both be seen at once. Or, you could hide the tengwar you just learned for an extra level of difficulty.

This special edition is only available from Lulu, as none of the other print-on-demand services allow for spiral-bound books. Feel special, that you’ve gone to the source and found the hidden gem!
