General comment

This is a compound verb. In DH, but not Lakota/Dakota, both parts not only require actor pronominal prefixes, but have preserved synchronically irregular, fossilized allomorphs of these prefixes. Proto-Dhegiha 1Act *k-kǫ-b-ra, 2Act š-kǫ́•-š-ra. Lakota kų́la B-315b analysed as dim. ‘desire; covet’; 1Act wakų́la. Lakota -la is not a match for the second root in DH. The Lakota from does not palatalize (PAssiniboine 1980:94).
