From "A native grammar of Caďinor":
Quote:
UT BAN TELNEMAI ER CUM CASSIA RENLODAI!
May I find the way and return with the helmet!


1. Why is the word for helmet "CASSIA" here? The word is listed as CASSIS in the lexicon, and all the examples of CUM in the "Cadhinor through the ages" page are followed by a noun in the dative, so you'd expect CASSIN no matter what gender CASSIS has. Instead, there's this feminine CASSIS in the accusative case here.

2. Why is the verb "RENLODAI", with O, when in the Cad'inor lexicon it's listed as RENLAUDAI? On the other hand, AIĎOTAUBREL appears as such in Šm Revouse's text and not as *AIĎOTOBREL.

Thanks.

1. This looks like an error; it should be cassin.

2. This is because the remote root of laudan is lod-. (I'm not sure if I mention this anywhere, but verbs formed by adding a preposition inherit any morphological oddities their parent has.)
