Pronunciation[edit]

Suffix[edit]

-tomo

  1. Forms plural possessed forms of animate nouns, including kinship terms and pets.

Usage notes[edit]

This suffix takes the place of the ordinary possessive suffixes (-dü, -i, etc.) and plural suffix -komo and does not ordinarily co-occur with them. (It may occur with a following -komo as -tonkomo, but in this case it indicates plurality of the possessor rather than the possessed noun.) For many kinship terms, it attaches to a suppletive form rather than the ordinary form of the noun. Exceptionally, it is never used with the kinship term nne (son or daughter).
