Left sandhi: Special (see description)
Right sandhi: None


Form and usage:

Straightforward combination of passive participle V{-ðaq}N, future nominal N{kcaq}N, and N{-u}V. It only makes sense on divalent stems, since it reduces the valency. The underlying Agent can be reintroduced in the Ablative case.

Left sandhi:

The leftmost morpheme is V{ðaq}N, so this combination inherits its idiosyncratic left-sandhi behaviour. See its entry for details.

Verb stem

Right sandhi: Regular
Valency: Valency-reducing
Diathesis: Patientive (NAP)


Meaning Notes
Patient is to be Vb'ed (by someone=Agent)
