Can this term be used to refer to the wing of an animal (bird, bat, etc.) as well as that of an airplane? Also, it seems clear it isn't inalienable, if it doesn't need bi- or some other prefix before it; is that correct? 07:58, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Yes. It is inalienable. Words that start with a- are generally inalienable. The prefix a- is like bi-, except that a- means "someone’s" instead of "his". If it were not inalienable, you could say tʼaʼ. —Stephen (Talk) 09:09, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
