I am musing about possibilities to express rights and related concepts - rights, dues, claim to something, entitlement, just/justice etc. - in NeoQuenya/NeoEldarin.

New tengwar sample found

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.
