More Eldamo beta stuff. I’ve sort of got the mobile navigation how I want. The vertical view is working for me, but the landscape view looks bad on the iPhone. There are clearly some css tweaks I am missing.

More generally, though, I have a draft of how I’d like to organize the Neo-Quenya page:

Neo-Sindarin is similar. At this point I am not looking for feedback on my specific word choices (which are very much a work in progress) but rather on the general approach. Right now I am including every word from every period and then marking the ones I think should be used with warning signs.

The reasoning behind this approach is that it makes all my choices clear, and if someone disagrees with me, they could conceivably copy and edit the list to reflect their own preferences. That’s the theory anyway.
Eldamo : Neo-Quenya Words
Neo-Quenya Words. The Quenya words presented here are drawn from a large number of sources, both before and after The Lord of the Rings. Since this does not precisely match Tolkien's conception of the language at any particular time, this section uses the “Neo-Quenya” designation. Individual ...

+Paul Strack Paul, you are doing a fantastic job.

A very big endeavor you have taken on. I have one suggestion (and like you said, we can (copy and edit it) to our preferences). Ct would become ht.

Yes, when I go through the EQ. terms, those I decide to update to NQ. will have kt >> ht. But they will also be marked as neologisms, in much the same way as N. lh-, rh- >> Neo-Sindarin r-, l-.

For example:
