Form and usage:

This affix is a variant of V{-it}V, meaning 'is N-less'. Like the variant, it is a true t-stem which, in combination with intransitive participial mood marker {ðu}, and intransitive participle V{ðuq}N, will yield 'ts' from the combination /tð/. This feature is then inherited by every stem derived with this affix.

It is also related to the negation affix V{ŋŋit}V, which, according to Fortescue et al. (2010), is {nʀit}, formed through a (non-standard) combination of {nəʀ} and {ŋit-}.
