quickinfo

The prefix foar- derives nouns on the basis of other nouns. It is used to refer to children from an earlier marriage. Its use is highly limited. An example is: bernchild(ren) > foarbernchild(ren) by a previous marriage. This prefix foar- can also be applied to refer to an illegitimate child.

[+] General properties

In fact, foar- is rather a prefixoid, as it derived from the preposition foarfor. It derives nouns from other nouns, or to be more precise, kinship terms. It is used to refer to children from an earlier marriage, and hence, only three occurrences can be found: bernchild(ren) > foarbernchild(ren) in a previous marriage, dochterdaughter > foardochter'daughter in a previous marriage and soanson > foarsoanson in a previous marriage. A derivation with foar- can also refer to an illegitimate child.

[+] Phonological properties

The prefix is pronounced with a broken vowel: [fwar]. In derivations the stress is on the prefix, as in FOARbernchild(ren) in a previous marriage.
