Those aren't words or prefixes, but stems that endings must attach to. To make a parallel example from a natural language, one could make a Latin entry _gaud-_ "rejoice", covering all derivatives such as _gaudeo_ "rejoice", _gaudium_ "joy" etc. but also with the hyphen to note that _gaud_ itself is not a word. *Muke! -- website: LiveJournal: deviantArt: FrathWiki, a conlang and conculture wiki:
