Hi all,

I've been pondering this for a while and could not come to an definite answer:
How do you split words in aikidō terminology? Is there any rule of thumb?

Some (non-exhaustive but covers most of the naming patterns) examples:

kiawase vs. ki awase, 気合せ
shōmen'uchi vs shōmen uchi, 正面打
katatetori/katatedori vs. katate tori, 片手取
gyakuhanmi vs. gyaku hanmi, 逆半身
sumiotoshi vs sumi otoshi, 隅落
kokyūnage vs. kokyū nage, 呼吸投
uchikaitennage vs. uchikaiten nage vs. uchi kaitennage vs. uchi kaiten nage, 内回転投
ipponseoinage vs ipponseoi nage vs. ippon seoinage vs. ippon seoi nage, 一本背負投
chinshin kurumagaeshi vs. chin shin kurumagaeshi vs. chinshin kuruma gaeshi vs. chin shin kuruma gaeshi, 沈身車返
jūji garami vs. jūjigarami, 十字緘み/十字絡み (the irregular kanji for karami, 緘み, is taken directly from a table hand-written by Masatomi Ikeda sensei, consistently on multiple places)
hijikime osae vs. hiji kime osae, 肘決め抑え

Sorry for the incorrect characters for uchi, tori and kaeshi, they keep getting butchered no matter what I do...

Thanks, but that's general, I wondered if there are any "customs" WRT aikidō specific terms like those listed in my original post.

Personally, i just follow the examples that I see on this web page and on the other pages of this website:
