[elfling members - a group on another list is putting together a shirt

So, nobody seems to have taken a stab at Quenya (and I've got Quenya
tattooed on my arm....) so here it is.

Mine? Or the language?

Me: Brook Conner. The language: Duh.... J.R.R. Tolkien

Lambe-lya : Tongue-your

nai hiruva : may it be found

sinome-sse : here-(locative decl.)

So, do you have David Salo's Tengwar fonts? Or one encoded the same

If not in Salo's encoding, here's the Tengwar by name (as I would
write it):

"Lambelya" : lambe a  umbar e lambe yanta a

"nai" :  ore a (short carrier) i

"hiruva" : hyarmen i romen u vala a

"sinomesse" : silme (nuquema if prefered) i numen o malta e esse
(again, may be nuquema) e

If you don't have any Tengwar fonts, I can send you an image....
