Form and usage:

This affix is regularly monovalent with the meaning 'Actor buys/gets/finds N'. However, Schultz-Lorentzen (1958) does give some examples of apparent transitive usage. It seems to derive from cases where the incorporated noun is owned by another person (who then is expressed as the Patient of the divalent stem). However, this usage does not appear to be regular nowadays, so we only record the examples but retain the designation of the affix as monovalent.
