For example, la'ar could be decomposed into laf+ar, laa+ar, or even la+ar, but the only valid one is laa+ar.
MTLP is also useful for looking up definitions of sub-words using FireDictionary.

Limitations of reverse (MTL to MTLP) conversion
- cannot determine whether original tone of inner basic tones was high or curving-up
- does not consider tone sandhi exception for basic tone followed by "ar"
- examples: "la'ar" is decomposed into "laf|laa+ar" but does not return "la+ar", which is also a possibility.
