Left sandhi:

Note the special left-sandhi behaviour of this affix: /j/ becomes /t/ on consonant stems (thus behaving like /ð/ in Inuktitut). To my knowledge, this is the only base affix behaving in this fashion, but composite affixes derived from this inherit the same sandhi behaviour. Following [i], the initial /j/ is not written (as usual), thus yielding three different forms: -juar-, -uar-, -tuar-.

According to Fortescue et al. (2010), the form {uaʀ-} may also appear on other vowel stems, not only following [i]. This is also shown in some of the examples given by Schultz-Lorentzen (1958), but when this happens is unexplained (or simply optional). Furthermore, this behaviour does not seem to appear in productive use nowadays, so we only note the examples but refrain from encoding it in the morphemic form.
