1060Re: Quenya perfect active participle
- Aug 14, 2008I have another kind of clue, Thorsten.
Tolkien was a fan of Nordic languages, he may well have made a calque of the procedure where past participles like "g�ngen, kommen" are "active" = intransitive, because the verb is intransitive and as such cannot have a personal passive.
But if anyone with access to the original note has more to say, so be it.
