Constituents: V{niaq}V + V{-ut(ə)}V
Morpheme type: Verbal modifier
Left sandhi: Default (additive, epenthetic or phonotactically truncative)
Right sandhi: None


Form and usage:

Combination of V{niaq}V and V{-ut(ə)}V, where the latter has cause drop of /aq/ on the former. V{-ut(ə)}V is here used in the reflexive/reciprocal sense, so the affix only takes intransitive endings with plural persons. It is presumably only used on monovalent stems.

Note that even though this affix likely seldom will be followed by another affix, it is nevertheless still a t(ə)-stem, so see the entry for V{-ut(e)}V for further details on the right-sandhi of these stems.

Verb stem

Right sandhi: Regular
Valency: Valency-preserving
