I was forwarded this picture; I have no idea what it says. If anyone can help me out, I'd really appreciate it.

Tengwar transcription

Just opened it in the proper link and was able to read it; seems to be an advertisement for a ring shop:

"image. my preciouss iss ready to pop the quesstion! Bilbo, Gandalf, Gollum, or another Lord of the Rings character in a jewelry shop, ring shopping, of course."

    "Jewelry" shop, I'd imagine. Jul 29 '18 at 22:37

    Thank you! That's obviously what it meant. Since they're using Tengwar to transliterate English writing, it's quite non-canonical; apparently they used the letter Ungwe as a J. Thanks again :) Jul 29 '18 at 22:45
  • That makes way more sense than mine. Ngwalme-as-y threw me for a loop. Also I was convinced the last word was "curse."

  • @AdeleC Yeah, that Ngwalme-thing is pretty random. Also, some Tehtar are superimposed, and words ending with a vowel have the Tehta appended to the beginning of the following word -- just the marks of a third-rate elvish transcription. sigh Jul 30 '18 at 20:03
