- 3rd person sg. pronominal ending "his, her" and probably its VT49:16, 38, 48, Nam, RGEO:67, attested in coivierya *his/her life, máryat "her hands", ómaryo "of her voice" genitive of *ómarya "her voice", súmaryassë "in her bosom" locative of súmarya "her bosom"; for the meaning "his" cf. coarya "his house" WJ:369. The ending is descended from primitive ¤-sjā via -zya VT49:17 and therefore connects with the 3rd person ending -s he, she, it. In colloquial Quenya the ending -rya could be used for their rather than his/her, because it was felt to be related to the plural ending -r,e.g. símaryassen in their not his/her imaginations VT49:16, 17. See -ya \#4.
