Form and usage:

This affix is formed through combination of V{(t)sii}V and the non-productive, reduced variant of passive participle V{-ðaq}N, i.e. {aq}. Thus, this combination is non-standard and lexicalised.

Left sandhi:

The left-most morpheme is V{(t)sii}V, which has a speciality that the initial /s/ does not assimilate a preceding /t/. See the entry for V{(t)sii}V for further details.
