Most possessive noun-phrases are dependent-marking (marking the possessor), using what is essentially a possessive clitic. However, there are two suffixes which allow for head-marking; these are possessive suffixes for the 1st and 2nd person singular, and only occur when the head is inalienably possessed.

"knung ler bjeuup" - book belong teacher - the teacher's book

construct states do exist, but construct states are used mostly for creating compound words, and not used with the genitive case at the same time.

possessive prefixes also present, but they are also not used with the genitive case at the same time.
