Notes:  Non-personal nouns that refer to objects have a prefix of an-/am-/ang- to denote singular.

The plurals will have fan-/fam-/fang-, e.g., angkeltot = a star; fangkeltot = many stars; anman = a bird; fanman = many birds

Possession in person (family) relationships employs suffixes: -ng for the first person (speaker), -am for the second person (listener), -ia/oue third person (subject) singular,-ri third person plural. E.g.: sikuang = my child; sikuam = your child; sikoue = his/her child; sikou = child; tamri = their father; tamam = your father; tamoue = his/her father; tabung = my father(tidung = my mother); paklum = your head; paklung = my head; pakloue = his/her head.
