3.

Inaki

ītə, good adj
ītaŋ, along adv

ītaŋ is derived from ītə by the suffix -aŋ that forms local and temporal adverbs.

Sei

t'owa, good adj

Inland family

reige, good adj
rage, well adv
fas, by giving
baqes, by helping

Converbs and manner adverbs commonly derive through the lowering of the root initial syllable vocalism, originally due to an eroded laryngeal infix. Manner converbs add a further suffix -s to this, hence fas < fei and baqes < baqe.

Lexember 4th - Yélian

fenbal [ˈɸenbɐl] - ungenerousity, stinginess, miserliness
fénbalas [ˈɸenbɐlɐʃ] - ungenerous, stingy, cheap

Etymology: Cross-derivation from the root *fnb, congates include fanab "greed" and afba "to hoard"

Reo lovorabaton pès rat yimiatdasʻi 𝕐i mia on'atép, otéi vut tyaritfénbalasbit!?
[ˈɾeː.ɔ̈ ˈloːʋɔɾɐˈbaːtɔ̈n pɛs ɾɐt ɕɨmɪ̯ɐˈdasʔi ˈʃondɔ̈ʔi ˈmi.ɐ ɔ̈nɐˈteːp, ɔ̈ˈtɛɪ̯ vʉt t͡ʃɐɾɨˈtʰenbɐlɐʃbɨt]
1SG.POSS customer-last-PL DAT 1SG.OBL PST-only-give-3PL PROP-ENUM one DEF.GEN=tip, how 3SG.INDEF POT-so-stingy-COP.3SG.ANIM
My last customers only gave me a tip of one bronze, how can you be so cheap!?*

* The (Kingdom-)Yélianian currency is the Mater "Gold", it is subdivided into 100 Tuilen "silver", which is further subdivided into 100 Yondo "bronze".
1 𝕄 is approximately 27,34 US-Dollars. Tipping is not mandatory in Yélian culture but you usually give the waiter two or three 𝕋, so about 30-60 US-cents. However, one Yondo equals only 0,27 US-Cents - that is really fucking cheap! The waiter is rightfully insulted.
Wipe the glass. This is the usual way to start, even in the days, day and night, only a happy one.

I am late, so very late [D;]

Proto-Bokisig

/ʔo.'da.ma/ "to give"
DAT-hand-VERB

The the verb ending /ma/ is derived from a dummy verb that could be conceptualised as "to do". There also exist other verb endings derived from dummy verbs in Proto-Bokisig, namely /he/ and /hɛ/ for stative verbs (mostly "verb-like adjectives"), and /som/ (maybe "to take") for some other verbs.

/ʔo.'da.tus/ "gift"

/tus/ is a derivational suffix that can only be used for /ma/ verbs and has a passive meaning ("something that is given").

/ʔo.ʔo.'da.tus/ “heritage”

The old reduplicated plural of "gift" (this form of plural formation is no longer productivein Proto-Bokisig) is still used, but has come to mean "heritage", in particular in the context of religious traditions.
