Question: When it comes syllabicating words, you break after vowels, except if two constonant comes after it, then you break between the consonants and if there is an affix, you break between the affix and the root, right?

@Sila That sounds roughly correct. I’m having difficulty finding words that would break those rules.

A bunch of the affixes start out as infixes (-um-) or postfixes that become infixes (-in) / (-an)...as opposed to MA- / MAG- and other prefixes
 
MAmatay - natural death; MAGmatay - extinguish lights/aircon/TV/etc
 
pINatay; pINapatay; papatayIN - murder
 
pUMatay; pUMapatay; papatay - kill more generally
 
Of course the structure of them fit seamlessly into the consonant(s) - vowel chunks. Just so your thinking of the "more fun" in the Philippines that waits in the affixes. Enjoy

@BoraMac Thanks! If it would be easy it would be less fun
