Variations

    Quenya does not have mutations in its grammar, like Sindarin does, but adding an ending to a root tends to cause a slight change in that root (except for in verbs which have their own variations within their conjugations).  Therefore, these work for nouns, adjectives, and etc.

******

Before any ending, long root vowels become shortened:

    > a

    > e

    > i

    > o

    > u

 

In two-syllable words containing identical vowels, the second vowel dissappears before an ending:

    Ex. "feren" has a plural of "ferni", "laman" has a plural of "lamni"

 

When the plural ending -r or the pronoun ending -nya are added, an end - becomes -e-

    Ex. "lantan" has a plural of "lantaner"; "r" + "-nya" becomes "renya

When other endings are added, an end - becomes -i-

 

When any ending is added, an end -o becomes -u-

 

When any ending is added, a last-syllable -k or -k- becomes -qu-
