Usually it’s the latter.

YOU NIQQAS WANNA LEARN ELVISH?! HERE YA GO!

is this legit?

This is legit. My husband, sitting across the room, looks over and says, “IS THAT SOMEONE SHOWING HOW TO CONVERT ENGLISH TO TENGWAR?  BECAUSE THAT’S THE WAY!”

Believe this man.  He owns atlases of Middle Earth, the complete history of Middle Earth (leatherbound), and has read the books at least 150 times.  Also: speaks elvish.

Yes.

What if there are two vowels in a row?

Does anyone know the answer to that last question?

Jill.

THIS IS SO EXCITING

THIS IS SO COOL OMG

If there are two vowels in a row, you use a carrier placeholder. It’s a plain straight line, like the letter i without a dot, that just exists to hold extra vowels.

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT

Shady Characters: The Secret Life of Punctuation, Symbols & Other Typographical Marks by Keith Houston

AmazonBarnes & Noble @ iBookstore # IndieboundPowell’s

"With zeal and rigor, Keith Houston cracks open the &, the #, the †, and more—all the little matryoshka dolls of meaning that make writing work. Inside, we meet novelists, publishers, scholars, and scribes; we range from ancient Greeks to hashtagged tweets; and we see the weird and wonderful foundations of the most successful technology of all time."
—ROBIN SLOAN, author of Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore
