megh'an	(n) end of an object that has discernible length
'er'In	(n) end of an object that has discernible length
chaS 		(n) top end of a cane.    (chaS)
qa'rI'	(n) end of a hallway, tunnel, road, a long field
Dor	(v intrans) end (of a stretch of time (month))
van	(v trans) end an event (voyage, song, story) which one has some control of (unlike a month)
ghang	(v trans) end prematurely
bertlham	(n) end/final portion of opera, play, story
bI'reS	(n) beginning/first portion of opera, play, story
'o'megh	(n) final portion of a song
lIH	(v) begin (introduce) a song
namtun	(n) beginning portion of a song
natlIS	(n) end of a list


Could a sentence be a list of words, thus [natlIS]?  Or following the [tlhegh] portion of the word
and stick with [megh'an/'er'In]?  We could probably come up with things like [rInDI'] and such as
well.
How would we talk about the end of a sentence?
