Morphemic form: N{-lijaq}N
New orthography: -liaq
Proto-eskimoic root: li-
Constituents: N{-li}V + V{-ðaq}N
Morpheme type: Nominal modifier
Left sandhi: Replacive (sandhi-truncative)
Right sandhi: None



This morpheme is a non-standard combination of non-productive N{-li}V (make) and passive participle V{-ðaq}N, with apparent loss of /ð/ (or weakening of /ð/ to /j/), which however resurfaces in gemination.

Left sandhi:

It inherits the left sandhi behaviour of its leftmost constituent, so it can display replacivity and cause /aq/ to drop on a preceeding stem.
