Good question. The prefix in question is "ni-", and it can be found for
instance in the word "ni-golanan" which breaks down thus:
If you were to use the "and" prefix (not yet invented), the semantic
meaning would change, perhaps it would not even be a meaningful
combination in this particular case.
