- Hulo' = Up, above, etc...
Ya- + hulo' => Yahululo' (reduplication of final syllable) = Highest place, farthest up.

Ya- + håya => Yahåyaya (reduplication) = Southernmost/Easternmost, farthest South/East.

- Må'pos gue' håya. = He went south/east (southward/eastward).

Pronunciation of the new words seems a little tricky, because the technical explanation would be that the stress falls on the "ante penultimate" syllable (3rd to last syllable). If we consider the above note, it makes it a lot easier to understand, because we're essentially saying two words in one:
- I yahululo'
=> Iya hululo' => EE-dza WHO-loo-loo'
- I yamo'nana
=> Iya mo'nana => EE-dza MOH'-nuh-nuh
- I yahåyaya
=> Iya håyaya => EE-dza HA-dza-dza
