Ah, some productive time I had, pondering on the complexities of Eldarin grammar. Some of the lengthier ideas I am still to release later, when I finish putting them to paper, but now for some minor notes.

• PE22:116 note 95 mentions a revision with 'overall intention… unclear'. I think the intention of those is quite obvious: Tolkien already starts to suspect that u actually belongs to uva and thus faráva etc. do not work. Instead he considers making faruva like a basic verb (as in all further documents presented) and briefly tries fara+uva = farúva instead. (I wonder how future perfect turns out now. After many careful studies of 'Changes in hiatus' and diphthongs in OPD I am actually leaning towards amātiē + uva = amátiúva (or amátyúva?) And also learned I say luini in GS wrongly.

• 139, note 48: is it definitely entaN for 'tomorrow'? +Christopher Gilson could it be a misread for *entaR > entā+rē?

• 154 tyare 'to cause'!

• 162 itas 'in that case'; ó 'with'. I definitely should make a glossary of LVS…

I did another story of a root, though not the one I promised; and I plan to post a discussion of tūlaiyeta separately, under the title '_aen_ is solved'.

+Tamas Ferencz Currently engaged with a mind-exercise of rewriting QVS syntactical part word-for-word in the later concept. Now I understand how it works, 99% know what aen is and, perhaps, can make a case for inflected conditionals in Sindarin!

+Александр Запрягаев​ it will be quite interesting to read what you think of aen. I posted an idea here about the "thor den" sentence in VT50 on the 7th of March last year where I argued that aen may be the subjunctive of "to be". It would be fascinating of it were true.
