Such as {nentay} "Rite of Ascension", perhaps? That one should tell
you to be cautious about what you infer. Yes, {nen} was eventually
revealed to us as a noun, but with the definition "growth, maturity".
The true meaning of an apparent morpheme doesn't necessarily
correspond to what you might expect based on the translation of a
compound.
