Form and usage:

This morpheme is no longer productive. It is an old morpheme, found in many divalent t-stems, where there exists a corresponding monovalent stem without the final /t/ (usually a vowel stem). Nowadays V{tət}V would be used (productively) to obtain the same meaning. It might even be the case that V{tət}V is derived from V{-t}V, as is also suggested by Fortescue et al. (2010).
