Form and usage:

Straightforward combination of V{llaq}V and V{-(cc)utÉ™}N, with the latter here in the sense of 'time of Vb'ing'. Thus, the meaning of this affix is actually verbal, even though the form is nominal. It is always used with possessive endings, where the Possessor indicates the Actor of the stem; i.e., the meaning is 'just as Possessor=Actor Vb'ed'. Note that it can seemingly only be used with monovalent stems; hence, divalent stems must use their HTR-form before this affix.
