Morphemic form: N{siutə}N (Combinations)
New orthography: +siut
Proto-eskimoic root: ci(C)un
Constituents: N{siuq}V + V{-(cc)utə}N
Morpheme type: Nominal modifier
Left sandhi: Default (additive, epenthetic or phonotactically truncative)
Right sandhi: None


Form and usage:

The affix is a historical combination of {ci(C)uʀ-} and {un}, with the latter apparently having caused a drop of /uq/ from the stem. It could alternatively be viewed as just a straightforward combination of N{si}V and V{-(cc)utə}N, but the meaning also seems to suggest N{siuq}V, rather than plain N{si}V, which however is included in the former.
