Mutations are part of Sindarin that you can't get away from, and soft mutation is the most used of all of them (look back at lesson 7 for all the times it is used). This exercise also includes some preposition practice (remember prepositions cause soft mutation in the word that follows them).
English - Sindarin
Translate the following sentences into Sindarin, they all require soft mutation at least once somewhere inside them.
A strong man = Benn velt A tiny mountain stream = Oll bigen/dithen/vîw (whichever word you picked!) The green field = I barth galen (did you remember that both words needed it?) The silent hunter = I faroth dhínen The hammer and the sword = I dham/dhring ah i vagol/grist The woman has a new cloak = I vess sâf/gâr coll gîw/'wain (either word is fine, don't worry if you got the verb wrong, but make a note of what it should have been if you did) Above a large tree = Or 'aladh (remember Galadh is for large trees, Orn is for any other tree) Upon a wide bridge = Am iant land (no soft mutation needed for a L but did you remember that?) Behind the prison = Adel i mand (band is an m(b) word)
