Form and usage:

According to Fortescue et al. (2010), the first part of this morpheme is {ŋit-}, i.e. N{-it}V, 'is without N'. However, the remainder of the morpheme is unexplained.

The affix is monovalent (Actor lacks N), but it can also be used in an avalent sense (there is a lack of N), if used with a ending and no explicit subject specified in the sentence.
