Is the word made up of only one root?
It contains exactly one root. So, it's not a compound. It does also contain non-root material, though.

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

I was always interested in whether Telefol had anything like an answer to "what is left pinky added to right ear?" or if the system is literally only used for counting, and any addition and subtraction starts from a point that the counter has reached, e.g. they can count to "right elbow", then when...

Is framaž- a noun?
No. Your previous comment about it coming from "from" is closer to the mark. But that had already occurred in PG and was not any of my doing.
Is it from the adverbial meaning of this word, s.th. like 'forth, forward; away, further'?
