Morpheme type: Verbal modifier

Right sandhi: None


Form and usage:

According to Fortescue et al. (2010), this affix derives from {ðuʀ}, i.e. the intransitive participle V{ðuq}N. However, the final part /uq/ is not explained therein.

Left sandhi:

On old t-stems, this affix (usually) attaches to /t/ without assimilating it. This is especially the case with all verb stems formed with V{ŋŋit}V, N{-it}V and V{-it}V. Thus e.g. with V{ŋŋit}V, the combination yields

similar to the left-most constituent V{ðuq}N.
