Is {bIQDep} (covers most animals in the sea, but not small animals) a
different thing than a {bIQ Dep} (any water creature)?

Is {bIQSIp} (hydrogen) a different thing than {bIQ SIp} (water gas)?

There are a number of words which appear to be compound words in the
vocabulary (written without space), with meanings which are not quite what
they would mean written as two separate words.
