This section includes examples of grouped nouns.
Keywords (words that end with e) are terminated with the grouping-operator ce.

- kato nete hundo nete mivo muce runu.
- A cat, a dog, and I (all) run.

- Note that muce here terminates all open keywords,
ce ce or dace would have the same meaning in this example.
The grouping-operator ca combines two adjectives (or Adverbs, or even nouns) before it,
otherwise each word that follows the noun applies to the noun independently.

- My stupid, beautiful and fast dog runs.
- "dog stupid fast my runs"

Joining numbers follows the same rules as nouns.
The difference being that creating one's own compound nouns is discouraged.
