    [-⁴ɂị, -⁴yị] “Place of. Location is usually found at.”

This ending allows you to create new words that indicate a place or location.

When added to a word that ends in an “-a”, the “-a” usually changes into an “-v” though there are a few words that the “-a” changes into an “-o” instead. Unless otherwise instructed, you should change the “-a” into an “-v”.

Make sure to always say the part before the final “-ɂi” with a high rising tone, even if you drop the final “-ɂi” as part of informal speech.

Depending on context, if you drop the final “-ɂi” some speakers might understand you as indicating “On.” or “In.” instead of “Location.”.

The examples shows this special tone marked.
