But *wejDIch* is treated grammatically as if it were a noun. "Numbers 
are used as nouns." And our example for this is *qep'a' wejDIchDaq,//*in 
which *qep'a' wejDIch* is a proper noun, which might affect the grammar. 
So it's not actually completely clear, and it's not at all clear that 
type 5 suffixes migrate to the ends of numbers modifying nouns they way 
they do verbs modifying nouns.
