This suffix is used when the subject is inanimate. -rup is used when the subject is a living being.

-bogh Verbs 9 (relative clause marker) that, what, where, which, who, whom or whose.
-chaj Nouns 4 (possession) their
-choH Verbs 3 (change) beginning to; becoming; starting to

This suffix indicates a change in state or direction.

-chugh Verbs 9 (subordinate clause marker) if
-chuq Verbs 1 (Reflexive) each other; one another

This suffix indicates that the action of the verb affects the subject. The verb prefix must have a plural subject and no object (such as ma- or Su-).

-Daj Nouns 4 (possession) his; her; its
-Daq Nouns 5 (locative) at, by, in, on, to

-Hey Nouns 3 (qualification) apparent

This suffix indicates that the speaker has doubts about the use of the noun.
