Form and usage:

This affix is regularly monovalent, meaning 'Actor searches for/celebrates/travels through N'. However, Schultz-Lorentzen (1958) also does give a few examples, where it is used in a divalent sense (with the 'searches for' meaning). This seems to be the case, when N is owned by the Patient. However, this usage does not seem to be common/regular nowadays, so we record the examples but retain the categorisation of the affix as monovalent.
