erneq, son, -târpoq, gets a new one, becomes ernertârpoq, gets a son.

Just to point out that this is written in the old orthography, and in the new one it would be -taarpoq, ernertaarpoq, panulluunniit etc.

Thanks, I don't know Greenlandic and all and this book is using the old orthography. If you could change the rest too, and possibly more as they come up, that would be really useful for me.

inuk, human, -pait, a group, becomes inugpait, a group of people.
angut, man, -ssuaq, big, becomes angússuaq, a big man.


I don't know if you are still interested but in the new orthography these would be kiassuaq, inuppaat and angussuaq.
