Form and usage:

Combination of intransitive participle V{ðuq}N and intensifiers N{-rujuk}N and N{(q)cuaq}N, verbalised with copula N{-u}V, which causes /aq/ to drop. As with other combinations with intensifiers N{-rujuk}N{(q)cuaq}N, the morpheme N{-rujuk}N may be repeated several times (especially in narrative speech) for further emphasis; e.g. with {aŋə}V

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.
