quickinfo

The adverbial suffix -en may take phrases as its base. Most of them are prepositional, for instance fanneden[[fan](P)[need](N)]]enof-need-ennecessarily. If the phrase is a Noun Phrase (NP), then the noun is usually preceded by a quantifier, as in iderkear-enevery time. The phrases in the derivations have a rudimentary form. For example, articles or (in an NP) adjectives are missing. The suffix is unproductive.
