Abstract

Compound words are made by placing side by side two words, of which that standing last is the determinant. When the last word has its accent on the last syllable, it is then moved to the penulimate, e.g., datu-bolon, gabe-bolon (42 b.), butuha-male (malé, 20 and 44), djolmatorop (toróp), ari-logo (logó), mate-boti (botí, 8 Obs).
