"Ei" as his lenites and "ei" as her does not?

Not quite; they both cause mutations, just different forms:

  • Fy - Nasal Mutation
  • Dy - Soft Mutation
  • Ei ... e - Soft Mutation
  • Ei ... hi - Aspirate Mutation

The other pronouns don't cause a mutation. In this case though, b isn't affected by the aspirate mutation, which is why it doesn't look like one takes place.

Diolch yn fawr. Those other mutations always get me.
