"I can't prove it, but - I think Melkor started Nolofinwë's fight with Father.  Maybe Nolofinwë will think better of it now."

Oh no, she really ought to know who they are, if they're important enough to have a feud with Nolofinwë, especially one that isn't sufficiently one-sided that he might think better of it.

If only she hadn't spent most of her life deliberately ignoring everything about any visitor that her parents entertained, especially if they expected her to sing for them.

"It seems that mending the problems he'd caused did not, in fact, rule out him causing additional problems?" she offers.

Makalaurë notices that she's nervous about them, not just about Melkor.  "Don't worry," he says.  "We won't refuse anyone who's willing to join us to come to Middle-Earth and fight Melkor.  Not even Nolofinwë himself, if he comes."

Lirtë just nods at first, then realises nobody can see her do that and feels foolish about it.

"Thank you," she says, which she thinks is at least within the set of answers they might be expecting. She's not actually all that sure that she wants to go to Middle-Earth and fight Melkor, but she's not exactly going to say that to the much more prepared people who are willing to let her tag along for now on the assumption that she's going to do that.

"Um," she says after a few moments, "but isn't Melkor here, and not in Middle-Earth?"

"Even I'm sure the Valar would be doing something if he's still here - and then we'd feel it, just like our fathers felt the rumblings at Cuiviénen the last time they were fighting him.  So he must've fled to Middle-Earth... and yes, Tyelkormo, maybe they're about to go fight him there too, but even so that doesn't change all the other reasons to go."
