Form and usage:

The affix is only used on adjectival stems describing a state of being. It is valency-increasing, by adding a new Agent role: the Actor role of the stem is mapped to the Patient role of the affix. Apparently, it is not used with a HTR-morpheme, so there is no HTR-form.

Left sandhi:

The affix may elide /ə/ on a preceding stem.
