SOooo, this is not a stupid April Fool’s prank. I hate those kind of things!
That might be the first thing you’re gonna think if you’re not seeing the text below correctly. If all you get is a weird code like: “5~CÁ 5#£ 1~V7E `C6 ” then you just need to get the font called Tengwar Annatar and you’ll do just fine! You’ll be able to enjoy this historical post! For the very first time, to change all the future for everyone who loves Quenya.
I present to you…….QUENYA, as it should be written! Just READ:5~CÁ 5#£ 1~V7E `C6 5#£ `C5nE- iG5# `B t%5$Ì zF1;E6 aF2$`Cj iT5^t$ hÍE 1~VaT5$ 5$6 1T`V,F t#.DhÍE zF5#Ì5 5~C 1~VaT5#\ hÍY yE5%t# 1Rx#w#7EÎ 1Rx#6ˆ 5#£ zF4#j$`C- 5#£ `B 5#1 `Bj$´ 1YjaT`V2%j%° ›`C6 zF5#Ì2%j%°› t$65$6= `B 1T`V 1RaT`V5 1Rx#6 5#1|F,F- j~C `Vt#:= j~C eG4#j$= `V6 zF5#Ì `CrlYaE 1T`V7EÎ,F=====1Fx#7F,FÁ
What is relevant about his text? This is NOT an image! This is TEXT! That’s Quenya as it should be written, with its own alphabet. With this new Quenya101 feature, we give Quenya the status it deserves! Alongside other languages with different alphabets (Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, Japanese and so on), now Quenya can be written using Tengwar. WRITTEN! Not just images pasted here and there!
Or should I say….1~VaG5#À
Well, for polite reasons, let’s share here the translation of the text as well as its Quenya equivalent written in that very ugly ugly alphabet we call Roman! Here it is:
Ná! Nas téra ar nas anwa. Sina i minyë quettar cendëal sinomë ya técinë ner tiessë mauya Quenyan ná técina: yo vanima tengwandarya Tengwar.
Nas quentalëa. Nas i nat ilyë Tolciendilli (ar Quenyandilli) merner, i tië tecien Tengwar natsessë. Lá emma, lá fintalë, er Quenya ampoica tieryassë…Tengwaressë!
And now English (at last!):
`C2# alYjR zF5#Ì5Á
Yes! It’s right and it’s real. This is the first words you are reading here that were written the way Quenya should be written: with its beautiful alphabet Tengwar.
It’s historical. It’s the thing all lovers of Tolkien (and lovers of Quenya) desired, the way to write Tengwar in the Internet. No picture, no trick, only Quenya in its purest way…in Tengwar!
