Prenouns are particles which must be attached to nouns in order to function within a sentence. 

The boldfaced elements in examples (1) and (2) illustrate prenouns.  Again, they are written with hyphens (-) to indicate that they are bound (much like dependent stem nouns) and cannot stand alone as words.

(1)    miyo-   “good; well”:            miyo-nāpēw “good man”; miyo-masinahikan “good book”, etc.

(1)    kihci-     “great; superb”      kihci-iskwēw   “grand lady”; kihci-atawēwikamik  “department store; Hudson’s Bay Company store”
