C'lela - English


k


k'- Class-marking prefix for a singular noun in the fb:K class. Nouns in this class are inanimate objects or plants larger than fb:D class objects. Plurals of fb:K class nouns use the fv:c' class-marker. The class-marker fv:k' should not be confused with the pronoun fv:k 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:k'fv:koro (river) is found between the words fi:d'fv:koro and fv:kosa, and the word fi:k'fv:qku (spider) is found between the words fv:qkskutu and fv:qm.
