-abel
quickinfo

In two cases, the non-native suffix -abel takes an adjectival base. This exceptionality is even reinforced as only native bases are involved. The words at hand are djoerabelexpensive (from djoerexpensive) and poerabelfurious (from poerangry). As can be seen, the main function of this suffixation is a strengthening of the meaning of the base.
