on the word 'sì'
« on: June 11, 2015, 01:17:15 pm »
So the word sì I have some question about rhe word . on this memrise course it shows you can use it as a suffix to mean the same thing. such as ontu sì kinam but also as ontu kinamsì, and I was wondering if this was correct at all and worth learning still, since I'm having trouble finding any other mention of it. and if so, would it cause any lenition? since on the course it shows it causing that apparently?

(sorry for any mispellings, Im not used to using an iPad which is what im typing on)

Of course, one can add as suffix.

EDIT: See Horen 6.20.5.2.

but would it cause lenition at all? ??? Since on the course it shows aylì'u horensì, where koren shows lenition with the h instead of k.

does not cause lenition. aylì'u horensì = words and rules (both words are in plural)

Nìprrte'! :)

Though, is special, it can be weird and case confusion. horen is just a shortened plural of ayhoren.
Also, does not "break" the case endings:
tsakrr paye’un sweya fya’ot a zamivunge oel ayngar aylì’ut horenti lì’fyayä leNa’vi
I will then decide the best way to bring you the words and rules of Na’vi.

<for the case if that question appears :) >

As was said - does not cause lenition. There are two reasons:
- lenition is caused by some prefixes (like ay+, me+, pxe+) and some adpositions (better said: prepositions), like mì, fpi, ro.
- is not prefix nor preposition, but connector

Also, even when lenition causing adposition is added to the end of noun, lenition does not occur. It works only when adposition stands in front of noun.
