A question to discuss. Do you believe that even in nominative Sindarin pronouns are unchangeably lenited?
Is there enough evidence to either side? I personally use them lenited for two reasons:
1) the unexplicable lenition in mae g'ovannen, not really understandable as it would be a non-grammatical leninion of a subject by an adverb which are properly unconnected;
2) the introduction of ho/hon/hono etc. under SE in the Etym, without even giving a possibility of an unmutated version.
In the same vein: how do you deal with the emphatic pronouns? Do you generalise hono to nini, lene or else?

Won't PE23 contain material about pronouns amongst others? Maybe we'll know more when it comes out...

+Tamas Ferencz It won't: (a) we already got a lot from PE22 and it's radically different from the current state, (b) it will be irrelevant for Noldorin (the definitive grammar of 1948 Ñ is not planned to be in PE23).

+Александр Запрягаев ah, okay. At least you have insider information 😅
