Dear Sergey,

If compounds typically instantiate these units (which looks like the case
in 'wife+another'), then one alternative is to use a "+" between the
components. This is especially useful when this type of juncture displays
different prosodic behavior than affix-stem and host=clitic junctures. The
Leipzig Glossing Rules are agnostic on this, but Lehmann (2004) mentions it.

Best,

Eric
