Could Sindarin preposition be 'as, like' in ben genediad Drannail be somehow connected to Quenya direct speech particle equë 'said' with a derivation following as something like ekwē > epē > ebe > be? The original meaning could thus be 'says one', 'as says one' > 'in accordance to one, according to one' .

To be honest I find that idea a bit far-fetched. I could be proved wrong of course!

I think it's related to Quenya ve which has a similar meaning.
