d


d irreg. infl. of dà̱ 1
d'- Class-marking prefix for a singular noun in the fb:D class. Nouns in the fb:D class are inanimate objects or plants of medium size and shape, between that of an egg and a fist. Plurals of fb:D class nouns use the fv:c' class-marker. The class-marker fv:d' should not be confused with the pronoun fv:d or fv:qd which is written without an apostrophe and replaces a noun. ######## When an entry has a class-marker it is written in italic writing. Class-markers may move to the end of a word in a sentence. The class-marker is not included in the way entries are ordered. For example, the word fi:d'fv:kwq (gourd) is found next to the word fv:kwq, and the word fi:d'fv:gyan (egg) is found between the words fi:k'fv:gyaara and fv:gyan.
