How to use possession with words ending in a vowel

Been stumped on this for a while.been trying to figure out if when using possessive with words like brii, would you correctly pronounce it add dii brii or brii-i or brii'i. Seems I only run into this problem on ajectives for some reason.

Following the pattern of Zii becoming Ziil in-game as Zii + -iil, I'd say the suffix -iil could be used that way with any vowel ending in ii. As for the other possessive suffixes, I'd say just to use the possessive adjectives instead (dii, hin, un).

As for words ending in vowels other than ii, I'd suggest just using the possessive adjectives as well.

Can this be a added to or clarified in the lessons section of the site? I didn't see anything about the use of possessives concerning words ending in vowels.

Unfortunately, that's not up to me, so you'll have to message paarthurnax directly.

For "mu", read "un".
