Did 'oqranD write this?

SuStel:
> And it seems to be conjoined by a je, which is why I didn't bring it up.
> It doesn't match what Qa'yIn is trying to do. If it had been yoHbogh matlhbogh
> SuvwI', it would have been what he was asking about.

Yes, indeed. And this {je} confuses me; isn't the {je} supposed to be
joining only nouns? Or is it being intentionally misused for poetic
reasons?

On the other hand though, perhaps it's used with the "too" meaning of
{je} in mind; i.e. "a warrior who is brave and true too".
