In some cases, the prefixed vowel is different from the main syllable vowel, e.g., xot reduplicates as xixot, probably because /s/ has a palatal quality that favors /i/. Other cases are probably due to various histories. The N (nasal) in reduplications such as tantéich ‘selling’ and chanchơng ‘buying’ may also be buried in history for an etymologist to unearth.; This prefix occurs on active verbs rather than stative verbs.; Previously labeled Ra-.cfchichatatáqrt-v: táq
