There is still a lot of work that needs to be done on the data model: cleanup, further data analysis and incorporating Neo-Quenya and Neo-Sindarin words. I have more to say about what I am planning next for Eldamo, but it's late for me and I will say more tomorrow.

Most remaining minor sources as far as I can tell: Qenya words in the Valmaric Script part of PE14, a few in the PE13 sarati, Adventures of Tom Bombadil, Art of the Hobbit (Lambengolmor 1116), Art of Lotr, l'effigie des Elfes (and CFH's glossary on Tengwestie, plus Roman's comments on Mellyn Lammath), Fate and Free Will, Kilby's Tolkien and the Silmarillion (Tolkien on the word 'Akallabeth'), Tolkien in Oxford, Kullervo, and a few letters on auction sites / in catalogs. (And also Berennyn > Berennyr with dôr 'land' in Hammond/Scull corrigenda)
