Just for your info: this group is discussing the writing systems like
Tengwar and Cirth, not the grammar and languages :o) But for this
The 'stem' is actually _MEL-_ (I guess this is the only thing we have
from Etym:372 except for _melo_ 'to love' given in VT45:34 but this
one was struck out - unless we find something new at the entry _SER-_
in VT46), now you add the pronominal ending _-on_ for 'I' > _melon_
means 'I love'; _le_ is 'you' > _le melon_ or if you go with _SER-_ >
_le seron_ although I don't believe the Elves would say such kind of
thing only like this. So this _le melon/seron_ is rather a Neo-
Sindarin + Mannish expression. :o)
