Abstract: Let **k** be a field of characteristic and *R* a polynomial ring in two variables over **k**. Define *weak variable* of *R* to mean an element *u* of *R* such that is irreducible for each and such that for some and some integer . Given a weak variable *u* of *R*, consider all such that for some *n*; if one of these *v* is "absolutely smaller" than *u* (roughly, for *all* coordinate systems (*X*, *Y*) of *R*), we call it an *R*-companion of *u*. The main result gives a connection between the structure of a purely inseparable extension , where *A* is a polynomial ring in two variables, and whether or not there exists a companion for each *u* in a suitable set of weak variables of *R*.
