|Albanian term or phrase: mbi të|
(If you have time I'd be very grateful for a translation of the whole sentence, which is perhaps a bit on the difficult side for just over halfway through an elementary textbook!)
Vesa e bardhë argjend sikur edhe ajo zghohet nga gjumi dhe pret të derdhen mbi të
rrezet e diellit para se të tërhiqet për gjithë ditën.
Does “atë” (accusative of both ai and ato) lose its initial A when preceded by a preposition which takes the accusative? So, “mbi të” = “on it”, for example? What happens with “nga”, which normally takes the nominative – “nga ai” would presumably mean “from it”, so does this become “nga i”, “i” being “ai” without the letter A?

Yes, mbi të and mbi atë are the same, and in this case it will loose "a"
However, in nominative, it wouldn't. In nominative it will still be "nga ai"
