N-noh

Allomorphy

Some animate nouns instead take a suffix -ɔ(hɔ)’ in 3p, 3's, and 3'p:

3s ’ɔ́niiih 'gopher'
3p, 3's, 3'p ’ɔ́niiihɔ́(hɔ)’ 'gophers, gopher (obv.)'

And some take -iih or -uuh, which shows the same syncretism:

3s ’abis’i  'beaver'
3p, 3's, 3'p ’abisiih 'beavers, beaver (obv.)'

Usage notes

Same as the 3'p form.
