Diaereses edits[edit source]

Hi there. Please have in mind that the diaereses was a stylistic trick by Tolkien and don't have something to do with "correct" spelling or pronunciation of Elvish. I think it's not worth the effort patrolling the pages for names without diaereses and proceed to edits simply to "correct" them. Of course if you edit an article to correct or expand it, you are free also to edit the names to include diaereses in the process, if you want; but getting into all this trouble just for the sake of entering the diaereses, my humble opinion is that it's not worth it.
