      Perhaps. There's often a very blurry distinction between Tolkien
      realizing that something was a mistake and Tolkien changing his mind
      about something. He often changed his mind about something and then
      had to deal with all the difficulties that would arise out of that.
      I'm just saying that Tolkien realized that if _anna_ once began with
      [3] (presumably < *[g], though this is not explicitly stated), then
      _ónen_ must begin with [g].

      They are at present still unpublished.
