PrefixEdit

ri-

  1. person from
  2. person who
  3. proclitic that forms person nouns

Usage notesEdit

This prefix is not a complete word on its own, but a clitic with the i symbolically representing only the vowel's height. When written with a hyphen, the vowel assumes a short diphthong pronunciation that transitions towards the secondary articulation of the first consonant phoneme of the attached word. This prefix spelling is only used without a hyphen when attached to a word whose first consonant phoneme is palatalized.
