  • Since these stems end in a consonant, the vowel i must be added when adding a suffix that begins with a consonant: tshi+uiń+n = tshuińin you name me.
  • With stems ending in n or ń, attention must be paid to forms where a suffix beginning with n is added: tshikańnan you hide us, tshimińnau you (pl) give it to me. For the 2s-1s form, the suffix n comes after the stem ending in n or ń: tshi+miń+n = tshimiń (a low tone indicates the delection of this suffix).
  • With mixed and non-local inverse forms, note the phenomenon of vowel harmonisation with the sequences ikᵘ and iku: nimińikᵘ […ukw] s/he gives it to me, mińiku […uku] s/he (obv) gives it to me.
