ᴹQ. Qantesser coll. “Full Names”
A term for the word-based names of Tengwar in linguistic notes from the 1940s (PE22/22, 50). For example, the Full Name of the tengwa q [p] was parma “book”. This term is a compound of qanta “full” and the plural of esse¹ “name”.
Conceptual Development: Although this term did not appear in later writing, the Full Names themselves appeared in The Lord of the Rings appendices (LotR/1122), though some of the specific names were revised from Tolkien’s earlier writings.
