Usage notes[edit]

  • This term is naturally possessed (some references use the phrases "inalienably possessed" or "obligatorily possessed", though this is not entirely accurate), but can be made unpossessed by the application of the depossessive suffix -nano, hence r-aho-nɨ (my stool) becomes aho-nano (stool).[1]
