In case not all of you follow Lambengolmor: Carl has brought a new tengwar sample to our attention, cf. https://www.christies.com/lotfinder/books-manuscripts/tolkien-john-ronald-reuel-two-autograph-6218450-details.aspx.
It is a short sample that reads “nai lye hiruva airea amanar”.
With regard to the tengwar, there are two unusual features:
- The initial AI in “airea” is spelled with a short carrier followed by yanta.
- The initial A in “amanar” has an a-tehta above, whereas the rest of the text has implicit a-tehtar.
