Can somebody explain the controversy around the lenition product of
in Sindarin? I guess, there was no new information concerning them at all, Noldorin revoiced these earlier, so it is not helpful as well, and yet the Salo's version of
and Renk's reconstruction of
are different. The closest thing is studying Early Noldorin mutation patterns, but they are indecisive, showing an apparent mutation of
lham > i•lam
, but liquid assimilation
lhonn > ur-honn
with an unexpected
lh > h
. There was such a change in Noldorin, but merely word-initially, not when in contact with mutation-causing elements. Knowing that they are always purely revoiced when becoming word-medial, how did the
idea appear in the first place?
