m


m irreg. infl. of à̱m
m'- Class-marking prefix for noun in the fb:M class, often a plural of an fb:I class noun, or mass noun such as water. The class-marker fv:m' should not be confused with the pronoun fv:m or fv:qm 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:m'fv:h[ (water) is found between the words fi:d'fv:h[ and fv:h[bh[b[, and the word fi:m'fv:banco (witchweed) is found between the words fv:banco and fi:d'fv:banda.
