Derivation
* ''-ummāt, -mmāt'': also found mostly in collective nouns, and some abstract nouns. These nouns come from Horse Speaker sources;
* ''-uyyi'': found mostly in abstract and some place nouns. Derived from Horse Speaker sources, although the cognate ''-ūy'' in the Salmonic dialects also exists.
* ''-m'': derives locative nouns , e.g. ''aldu-<u>m</u>'' "school" (from ''aldu'' "school" + ''-m'') and sometimes verbal nouns. Survives with some frequency in some Salmon Speaker toponyms and a few rare instances in the Horse Speaker dialect;
* ''-pnis'': habitual activities. In Modern Standard Minhast, words containing this suffix indicate Upper Minhast origins;
* ''-niwak'': habitual activities that occur daily; sometimes indicates a profession. Most noticeable in the term ''hupniwak'', tools associated with carrying out daily functions, e.g. a flint stone for lighting fire (this term has also become a derogatory term for the City Speakers, since they serve as "tools" for administering domestic policy);
