How to attach possessive suffixes?
« on: December 23, 2016, 02:48:48 PM »

I was talking with Elaran, who is a better Sindarinist than myself, and brought up the question of how to say "my hand" using the possessive suffix. "Maben" using the regularized-by-analogy suffix -en? "Maban" from hypothetical Old Sindarin *mapa-na? "Mabon" from hypothetical OS *mapǭna < CT *mapān(i)ā?

My guess is "maban", but I'd like to know what people who know Sindarin think.
