Discussion of "birlxatere"

Comment #1: Concerning morphology
Curtis W Franks (Tue May 27 03:49:20 2014)

This word almost could be considered to be classified as a type of arm
called "ater", "hatere", or something of the like. But it uses a hyphen
"l" rather than a hyphen "n", which I understand to indicate that the
consonant cluster is not appending a classifier rafsi but merely some
self-meaningless syllable. "birnxatere" would be something to do with
arms, but the meaning of this word cannot be guessed without prior
knowledge or context because there is no classifier appended to (or,
particularly, in) it.
