On the occasion of the passing of Clayton Moore, I tried something. The
results are...well, weird. I transliterated the name that his friend Tonto
always called him.
qI' = sign (a treaty) (v)
-mo' = verb suffix for "because"
Sa' = General (military rank) (n)
be' = woman, female (n)
The compound noun would literally be interpreted (possesor-possessed) as "The
General's woman", which is the subject of the verb-suffix construction which
means "because <he/she/it> signed (a treaty)" ...
Does this seem to imply an indentured female servant/concubine belonging to a
Why would Tonto refer to his friend in such manner ?
