6. Prefixes ? ?
Only in the most formal situations is it necessary to write out the Nominative singular form entirely.
The most commmon examples of this are the singular pronouns:
Kehu --> Keh
Pahu --> Pah
Hetu --> Het

Similarly, the conjugation of a verb isn't always written out if the subject is clear from the sentence structure, for example :
'Hetuu hisemhl' instead of 'Hetuu hisemhluu'

Lastly, the prefix *i isn't necessarliy written if it is clear through context, or if the word has no derived forms with different prefixes that could lead to confusion, for example :
Sgamu (a bush) is usually not written out as bi-sgamu, because there is no other derivation of this word.
