Quenya Phonetics P2: [ŋ] vanished between [i], [u] and [n] with compensatory lengthening

Q. [ŋ] vanished between [i], [u] and [n] with compensatory lengthening; [{iu}ŋn] > [V̄øn]

In Quenya, the velar nasal [ŋ] vocalized between i, u and n, producing long ī, ū in the process: iñn, uñn > īn, ūn. Tolkien described this sound change in both the Outline of Phonetic Development [OP1] from the 1930s and the Outline of Phonology [OP2] from the 1950s:

Ancient Quenya Phonetics P43: [z] assimilated to following [m], [n]

AQ. [z] assimilated to following [m], [n]; [zm|zn] > [mm|nn]

After the voicing of s to z, the combinations zn, zm became nn, mm. This change is mentioned in both the Outline of Phonetic Development [OP1] from the 1930s and the Outline of Phonology [OP2] from the 1950s:

Ancient Quenya Phonetics P38.5: [β], [ɣ] vocalized before voiced consonants

This sound change should occur before https://middangeard.org.uk/aglardh/node/246 given the example ndagwē > ndau̯we > nau̯we > Q. naue (PE19/94), so it is labeled “Part 38.5”. Proper ordering will be reflected in the next Eldamo release.


AQ. [β], [ɣ] vocalized before voiced consonants; [VβC|VɣC|Vɣj|Vɣw] > [VuC|V̄øC|Vij|Vuw]

Ancient Quenya Phonetics P41: medial [s] often became [z]

Part 40 has already been published here:


AQ. medial [s] often became [z]; [Vs{Vmnrljw}] > [Vz{Vmnrljw}]

In Ancient Quenya, an s was voiced to z between vowels and before voiced consonants, a change described in in both the Outline of Phonetic Development [OP1] from the 1930s and the Outline of Phonology [OP2] from the 1950s. The sound changes in the 1930s were:
