Commentary
We have picked up those Dwarvish names from The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales and the collection The History of Middle-earth.

Dwarves had two different pronunciations for r: some used a trill, others used a back or uvular R, a sound that the Elves found distasteful. We have used a uvular R for this record.

The text is transcribed in Elvish runes or cirth according to Tolkien’s given valuation in the Angerthas Moria. We made use of Daniel Steven Smith’s typeface Cirth Erebor.
