Form and usage:

This affix is just a verbal form of superlative V{nəqvaaq}N, created with N{-u}V, which causes the final /aq/ to drop. Note that some speakers may not drop this /aq/, and thus instead say -nerpaajuvoq rather than -nerpaavoq.

Left sandhi:

The first component in this combination is V{nəq}N, which may elide a final /ə/, thus so may this combination.
