Numeral as base
quickinfo

Forming adjectives by way of suffixation of numerals is rare. Only three suffixes are involved, and -lik (ienliksingle) and -sum (iensumlonely) can only be attached to the numeral ienone. The suffix -er has a somewhat wider range, although with severe restrictions as well. For instance, it can only be attached to numbers ending in -ich (which furthermore should be divisible by 10).
