C'lela - English


s


s'- Class-marking prefix for a noun in the fb:S class. Nouns in the fb:S class are usually plurals of V class nouns and may be verbal/active nouns. The class-marker fv:s' should not be confused with the pronoun fv:s or fv:sq 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:s'fv:bakqvto (long-distance shooting) is found between the words fv:bakazowa and fv:d'kakce, and the word fi:s'fv:kwxxnx (shrill song) is found between the words fv:kwxxmsx and fv:kwxxtqmkwx.
