a relay - for those of you who don't know,
Khangaþyagon nouns can combine segunakar
(suffixes) in various complex ways to form fine distinctions of meaning, eg
hirriltar zerrishar magyeissgrigur
hirr-i-lt- ar zerrish-ar mag- ye- iss- gri- gu- r
fly- 2-imp-pl bird- pl tree-voc-near-above-via-pl
May birds fly just over the tops of you trees.
(Rather arbitrary example made up to show how
many segunakar you can get on one noun)
