No, that would break the vowel-harmony rules, and we can't do that, can we? All vowels in a non-compound word must be either all high or all low. While _yuh_ looks like a nice Sohlob word _(h)anson_ definitely does not(*), so that rules out the compound possibility. (*)Possible, but not fitting the lámatyáve.
