My Chasmäöcho /tSas'mawtS@/ also has this feature: the object of transitive
verbs is incorporated in the verb (between the verb root and the subject suffix,
the object prefix which agrees with the object stays in front of the root) when
it's not completed by words carrying their own stress (such as adjectives).
Also, when it's completed by affixes that can have a short or a long form, the
incorporated noun has to use the short forms.
