There are several dissyllabic compounds, having yig (in compound for yi ge) as the second member. Because yi ge itself could mean a “letter/syllable/phoneme,” “(printed/written) character/script,” “(correspondence) letter,” “inscribed/written text,” “document/record,” “literature,” so on, these compounds can also belong to various semantic categories.
