Vinyar Tengwar 50 is the fiftieth issue of Vinyar Tengwar, a journal of the Elvish Linguistic Fellowship, devoted to the scholarly study of the invented languages of J.R.R. Tolkien.

The issue presents, for the first time, a manuscript by Tolkien denoted the "Túrin Wrapper". Other formerly unpublished writings are two charts of Elvish conjugations (early 1950s and ca. 1949, respectively; page 22) and a note from 1953 about the language Beleriandic (page 24).

From the publisher

_VT_ 50 contains my presentation and analysis of the "Túrin Wrapper", featuring a set of three untranslated Sindarin texts from the (probably early) 1950s pertaining to the "Túrinssaga".
