Topic: Parsing verb suffixes and type 6 verb suffix - completeness
I'm working on adding verb parsing to my dictionary and see on Lesson XIII – Suffix Order and Indirect Objects there is a type 6 suffix listed as "Completeness" with two suffixes -ûk and -âzh. I don't remember seeing these two in the past.
I looked through the other lessons, and besides the list of suffixes having the following two entries, I don't see an explanation of how these effect a verb (maybe I missed them in a lesson somewhere):
-âzh partially, incompletely UNF
-ûk all, completely, collective plural TK [thrakatulûk = to bring them all]
The example word from Tolkien makes sense in that context, but what if we expand them to a simple, none infinitive, sentence:
irz-izg = I run
irzâzh-izg = I partially run?
irzûk-izg = I completely run?
Do we think those last two are valid, or are these only used with a plural object to mean "some of X" and "all of X"?
grushulâzh-izg - I hit some of them
grushulûk-izg - I hit all of them
To see the verb parsing in action, check out https://redhandorcs.org/search?w=thraka … gu&d=0. This sentence is ungrammatical, but it does demonstrate all the suffixes in one go
If you have a chance, try other verb conjugations with a variety of suffixes and let me know the outcome. I'm going to start working on noun parsing next.
