on the word 'sì'

<< < (2/2)

Nìprrte'! :)

Though, sì is special, it can be weird and case confusion. horen is just a shortened plural of ayhoren.
Also, sì does not "break" the case endings:
tsakrr paye’un sweya fya’ot a zamivunge oel ayngar aylì’ut horentisì 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 :) >

--- End quote ---
As was said - sì 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.
- sì 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.
