I re-read the posting that started this and have a couple of comments to
add to my previous post.
> ?HoHeghwI' -- he/she who kills himself
The suffix 'egh starts with a '. There is a typo that omits the ' at the
beginning of 4.2.1 but all the examples include the '.
> DughojmoHwI' - he/she who teaches you(singlular)
I don't reject -wI' on prefixed verbs out of hand, but this one comes off
as weird. Perhaps it's because I know I'd say ghojmoHwI'lI' for that
sense. I would use -wI' on any combination of suffixes if I judged that
construction to be the most effective means of communicating a given meaning.
