Form and usage:

Combination of intransitive participle V{ðuq}N and intensifier N{(q)cuaq}N, verbalised with copula N{-u}V, which causes /aq/ to drop. See also the variant V{ðurujukcuu}V, containing also the morpheme N{-rujuk}N, which is used for further emphasis. Note: Even though this affix in principle can be used with stems of any valency, any valency-reducing morphemes (e.g. HTR) would normally occur before this affix. Thus there is no HTR-form for this affix.
