How to treat unconfirmed nominatives?

My question comes because a few sentences from High Valyrian 101 at the Making Game of Thrones Blog. Right now I am putting an asterisk before them, for example I listed *rhūqes "pigeon" (-es being common for animals) which is the genitive rhūqo in the sentence. Is this appropriate? Otherwise, feel free to comment out these entries until we receive confirmation from DJP. --Juelos 10:03, 9 May 2014 (CDT)

I generally do comment out such swords until I get confirmation. I wasn't planning to add those entries until I blogged about hem on my journal, and I'll probably hold off on editing your contributions until then too. But you did a good job overall, and it's about time that someone broke my monopoly here anyway. --Iustinus 11:38, 9 May 2014 (CDT)

I was thinking about lōtinti... Can it be the accusative singular of a substantivized form of something like lōtinta, from a verb like lōtinagon "to bake"? Has DJP said something about it? lōtinagon > lōtinta > lōtinty > lōtinti? Since we're basically saying "(I want/I'll have/etc.) pigeon cake again, please." -Papaya
