-emint
quickinfo

The unproductive, originally non-native suffix -emint may sporadically be attached to nouns, also to native ones. An example with a collective result is kaakjaw which becomes kakemintthe lower and upper jaw. In other cases, -emint seems to add a kind of strengthening effect at most, for example in soartemintkind next to soartekind. Nouns ending in -emint are always neuter.
