Sorry about the late reply, you don't want to know why... I knew the instr. pl. part (hence my translation "with letters") Although, looking a little closer at my wordlist, it actually says:=20 "tengwe" (pl. tengwi) "indication, sign, token", apparently often used = as "phoneme" in a language. _hloniiti tengwi_ "phonetic signs". I must have confused "tengwe" with "tengwa", which plural is of course = "tengwar".=20 Sorry about that.

But of course! :) "The one who knows some Quenya, but more Swedish." Talk about a sucky sig, but it was the best I could come up with. :) It probably contains a lot of errors. I guess someone more into Quenya = than me=20 on conlang-l could correct it, but the main thing is that people = understand it, right?
