-QE as a connective enclitic

An ending -qe may not always be a connective enclitic. (Winter 1956)

However, in general, -qe at the end of a sign group indicates a copulative or connective enclitic, which is like tacking "and" on to the end of a word to indicate that it is part of a list. This is the same as -τε in Ancient Greek. See MY Au 102, PY Ta 722, KN C 979+ and the KN Ch series for some examples.
