Rie erya lénen eke mon harna atan ilquo nehtaina: nananta sen ma hastaina.

wow really heart-aching

Unfortunately we seem to lack a valid word for 'way = manner, mode'. in this sense only occurs in a passage that Tolkien rejected with the comment "This won't do , since le is a pronominal element" (PE 17:74).

+Björn Fromén If Quenya were Finnish, one would simply go ahead and use haimë.

Or we resort to the use of tie "way, path, direction"

The word "tie"is well known, often used, and easily understandable. Not using obscure words is a good "tie" to get the community better communicating.
