      Having had only a few moments to scan Helge newly-revised Quenya
      course, it is nonetheless readily apparent that his treatment of the
      matter of the Quenya pronominal system is _vastly_ improved, and so I
      would like compliment him for it. I think anyone will agree that,
      despite having to reveal a set of shifting data that is somewhat more
      complicated than previously, the presentation of the matter itself is
      nonetheless much _clearer_ than previously (due in large part to the
      removal of much special pleading).

      I'll also take this opportunity to correct Helge's wording at another
      point: I have never said that I "recognize the so-called _merin_
      sentence as genuine"; I said only that I saw in the sentence itself no
      reason to think that it was _not_ genuine.

      ho bios brachys, he de techne makre.
      Ars longa, vita brevis.
      The lyf so short, the craft so long to lerne.
      "I wish life was not so short," he thought. "Languages take such
      a time, and so do all the things one wants to know about."
