Compound: non-last part of a compound

Compounds are traditionally segmented to individual syntactic words in Sanskrit, although they are written as one orthographical word. Only the last part of a nominal compound bears the case ending. The previous parts have a case-neutral form (which is often identical to singular vocative). These forms are tagged with Compound=Yes.

Yes: it is a case-less form in a compound
