I have to admit, there's far less information on this specific kind of Elvish, and it's much easier to use one of Tolkien's languages which are probably more fleshed out.

Notes: G and J are switched: G = soft g and J = hard g Write hard C as K "Th" at the beginning = hard Th "Th" at the end = soft Th "Ch" is pronounced "Kh" (softened K) R is likely with a rolled tongue Supposedly Q is pronounced as a combination of K and G and exact pronunciation is nigh-impossible for non-elves and half-elves to do

Spelling is supposed to be completely consistent with phonetics without exceptions, like Hiragana or Katakana in Japanese
