History

Fëanor invented the tengwar on the Valian Year 1250. strongly influenced by the Sarati of Rúmil the Loremaster.

Unlike Rúmil, Fëanor considered vowels as indepedent sounds and not just “colours” of the consonants, so he devised the “full writing” (Quanta Sarmë). However he also used a more 'conservative' system which seem to have been proved far more popular. Fëanor held the idea of syllabic analysis of the words by the Sarati, and made also use of signs for vowels (instead of the full letters).
