|Affix function||number of borrowed affixes|
Information and examples are from Rose (2012). Detailed reconstruction allows determining that the plural marker was borrowed from an intermediate Proto‑Carib language into Proto Wayampi‑Emerillon‑Zo’é. The marker is a suffix in two of the daughter languages (Wayampi‑Emerillon) and a free form in one of the daughter languages (Zo’é).
