Tengwar for Esperanto    Tengŭar-Alfabeto por Esperanto (Tengwar Alphabet for Esperanto)

This is a Tengwar mode for writing Esperanto devised by Andrew Cockroft. Tengwar are well suited for this task, as the Esperanto orthography is almost phonetic, as is the case with Tengwar. This means that there is practically a one to one relationship between a tengwa or tehta and a letter of the Esperanto alphabet.

This approach is based off the Tengwar mode for Esperanto published by Eric S. Raymond in 2000, but with the diphthongs changed to be in line with the diphthongs as used in Sindarin mode (as opposed to a combination of Sindarin, Quenya, and Beleriand modes).
