There's also dreamingfifi's section on tengwar from Your Sindarin Textbook! I don't agree with some of her conclusions on Elvish literacy, but her materials are great.
I recently found out that dreamingfifi's section on the Mode of Gondor seemed to be a bit different from Celedethor's, but deep down in my guts feelings, such difference wasn't my personal preference and so I didn't bother...
So, Celedethor, is there a standard mode to use? From what I've gathered, it seems like Tengwar is a free for all.
Many have tried to find a definitive conclusion and much evidence shows that the elves most likely used the beleriandic style of writing for Sindarin, yet there is also strong evidence that they might have been using tehta-modi like the mode of Gondor throughout their existence in middle earth. I recommend what I always do, choose those you like and learn these.
Amy: Hello! I am confused about the verb nautha-. In lesson 17 the dialog at the start has “nauthog” for “you think”, then “semin” for “I think”. Is nautha- one of the irregular verbs? I can’t find anything else it in the lessons or dictionary. Thank you!

Xandarien: Suilad! There have been two verbs used for 'to think', I apologise for the confusion. There's Nautha- 'to conceive an idea, think' and Sam- 'to think. Sam- should have been removed everywhere as it was a reconstruction that we don't need. I'll change that.
