Languary Day 13: Diminutives and Causatives, with Phlufeen

Some more Derivational Morphology for today!

causative & diminutive

Noun today is Fire, phan and verb is shout, teafa

Causative, -alt, talt-

to enfire, taltphana (because we’re verbing a noun it gets an -a at the end)

to make-shout, teafalta (and the A moves to the end here.)

And diminutive, which is an irregular affix in that it always goes at the end!!

-een, or if very small, eeneen

A starting fire, tiny fire, a spark, phaneen

Shouting just a little, or a cute shout, teafeena

Little Phluf the scholar, Phlufeen.
