The proof is in the pudding. The only way to prove
your point of view is to make the root words and
the compound words. I had to change Ygyde root words
many times while I was defining new compound words.
When I defined about 1000 compound words, the root
words became stable. Only *you* know how you want to
define the root words so only you can do this work.
