--Wade (discussion) 1 août 2016 à 14:57 (CEST), Milan Rezac: Another apparently prefixed adverb that does not seem to lenite is bras- (intensifieur): ur vro bras-ec'hon (G).

Cf. optional (not obligatory, as apparently above) nonlenition for adjectives in coordination: ur gazeg bihan ha glas, ur waremm gouez, kompez (Press) or with a complement, etc (Press, Favereau). It seems that intensifiers are among the factors that block lenition: un vro bras-meurbet, un dra bras-abominapl, ur vougev bras-kenan (G), where the SUFFIX intensifier prevents the adjective from leniting. In fact Favereau p. 152-3 explicitly gives this for un dra mat-tre &c.

--Wade (discussion) 1 août 2016 à 18:55 (CEST)A parallel to the idea that ADV+ADJ fails to undergo lenition that ADJ alone would undergo: ken ADJ, 'so ADJ' and comparative (equative) ken ADJ ha/...: e.g. (n')em eus ket james gwelet tud ken bras (not: gen bras, gen vras, etc.) (see link below), or, ur vro ken paour (G: "ur vro ken"), un den ken sot-se, ken sot ha Paolig (G: "un den ken"). PS -- under equative ken ADJ (ha) in ARBRES, I can only find instances as predicate, not as modifier (attribut).
