Form and usage:

This morpheme is a variant of V{(t)siisəgə}V with the same meaning as it, in the special usage with contemporative mood endings, but built with the passive participle V{-ðaq}N instead of V{'-tə}N and N{-gə}V. The role mapping is here resolved by using possessive endings, rather than verbal endings.

Left sandhi:

The left-most morpheme is V{(t)sii}V, which has a speciality that the initial /s/ does not assimilate a preceding /t/. See the entry for this morpheme for further details.
