Exercise 8 - En mutation practise (Lesson 14 and recaps of Lessons 8 & 9)
Although in practice you generally won't find yourself using this nearly as often as soft mutation or nasal mutation, it is still used enough for you to need to know it! (Again, it is very useful to try and memorise a lot of the letter changes, obviously the mutations chart is there to help you, but see how you get on from memory first). As always, drag to highlight the rest of the lines to check your answers.
As in the Nasal Mutation exercise, I will give you the singular, and you need to say what it becomes with 'en' before it, for example: Mallorn (golden tree) = e-mallorn (of the golden tree)
Amarth (fate) = en-amarth (of the fate) Gwelu (air) = en-gwelu (of the air) Telch (stem) = e-delch (of the stem) Balrog (demon) = e-balrog (of the balrog) Salab (herb) = e-halab (of the herb) Henneth (window) = e-chenneth (of the window) Forod (north) = e-forod (of the north) Gwarth (betrayer) = en-gwarth (of the betrayer) Echui (awakening) = en-echui (of the awakening) Genediad (reckoning) = e-genediad (of the reckoning). G- behaves differently to GW- North (riding race) = en-north (of the riding race) Pethron (narrator) = e-bethron (of the narrator)
Remember, en becomes in when the thing it is discussing is plural: Mallorn (golden tree) = i-mellyrn (of the golden trees) Note the difference between i mellyrn (the golden trees) and i-mellyrn (of the golden trees).
Amarth (fate) = in-emairth (of the fates) Gwelu (air) = in-gwely (of the airs) Telch (stem) = i-thilch (of the stems) Balrog (demon) = i-melryg (of the balrogs) Salab (herb) = i-selaib (of the herbs) Henneth (window) = i-chennith (of the windows) Fing (lock of hair) = i-fing (of the locks of hair) Gwarth (betrayer) = in-gwarth (of the betrayers) Echui (awakening) = in-echui (of the awakenings) Genediad (reckoning) = i-ngenediaid (of the reckonings) North (riding race) = in-nyrth (of the riding races) Pethron (narrator) = i-phethryn (of the narrators)
