sa ... mooglikas ... as possible functions, strictly speaking, as a circumadjectival modifier consisting of two heads, in contrast with genôchenough, which is merely postadjectival. And whereas genôchenough blocks attributive agreement, mooglikpossible obligatorily attracts attributive agreement, as shown below:

Example 1

A production that is as big as possible
b. *In sa grutt-e mooglik produksje
