 For those of you reading PE 22, does it say much about  how ol- is used in the sense of  "to become"? Its been a long wait for a word like that. Is it a stand-alone word or can it be combined with endings?

The verb is actually ola, with 'inherently continuous' meaning and thus failing to form an actual aorist. Hence something on the line (I"0'm quoting QVS actually) pres.-cont. ola, past óle, perfect olólie, fut. oláva. However when using it with adjectives like 'become pale', a suffixation is more normal, with ninkwe > ninkwita (pa. t. ninkwinte) or (as EVS suggests) alternatively ninkwirya 'grow pale'.

+P Arellond I stand corrected: apparently, you just use oluva for a future in 'mature Quenya'.
