A comparative is formed by appending the suffix -Cpr to an adjectival verb; the same form is also superlative. Ordinal numbers are formed by appending the suffix -Ord to the corresponding cardinal numbers. Note that -Cpr and -Ord are identical. An equative is formed by appending the suffix -Equ to an adjectival verb.
Spatial verbs can be derived from nouns and pronouns by appending the locative suffix -Loc. Dynamic verbs can be derived from spatial relation verbs and possibly other static verbs by appending the state change suffixes. When appended to -Loc, the resulting combinations are allative, ablative, and perlative, respectively.
The deontic modals are basically anticausative; they can be made active with the causative suffix *j (-Cau). The active forms don't combine with the polar auxiliaries. Deontic possibility becomes kahi, kaç "permit" and deontic necessity becomes kori, kây "require".
Causatives are used on other verbs as well.
There is also in inverse suffix *he (-Inv).
An adverb of manner consists of an adjectival verb with the suffix *jpet -Man.
An adverb of degree consists of a unit noun with the suffix *thkr -Deg, e.g. *pewnethkr (*pôneska) "cup" or "cupfull".
The noun-to-noun derivations include a superset derivation, possibly multiple diminutives and augmentatives. All these derived nouns may be incorporated.
