Doing research for my participles project. A question for those skilled in Quenya: how do a stressed éu (and, less importantly, áu ) behave in Q phonology? (Acute for stress, not especially for length.) I understand Tolkien was himself unsure about it, but would you, for example, make future ortá > ortauva, ortúva or ortáva? Same for hostaniéva — after Tolkien revised BA to UB, the whole structure lost its strength, for it is totally unclear how uva does behave in proximity of vowels (apparently, devours all unstressed/short, but what about long/stressed)?
