Indeed !

Now that I re-read the relevant message from maltz, I noticed, that the
difference between the examples where the {-na'} *could* apply to the other
suffixes too, and the examples where it *can't*, is that in the examples
where it *can*, it can apply to suffixes which precede it.

What a relief, that there's a pattern which could explain this !

As soon as you begin to understand something, two more questions will crop
