compounds; the first sound of the second word/character is usually
voiced. So you have words like:
kami : paper
te-gami : letter; the second kanji is the same as the 'kami' for paper
That seems to be the general rule, anyway. There are exceptions, but if
you don't know better the voicing rule seems to apply.
Not sure if '-dono' is applied the same, but that's what appears to be
happening here, ne?
