This is an incomplete list of container and contents indicators; in general, they can be mixed and matched by careful use of 'by' (e.g. "X eating Y" = "Y eaten by X"). Not all possible forms are listed here, and you may encounter other verb conjugations and variants (such as "is eaten by" instead of "eaten by").

Many of these indicators double as hidden word indicators.
