-inge
quickinfo

The suffix -inge will now be obsolete in the spoken language. In the written language it belongs to the elevated style. It is a variant of the suffix -ing. Next to for example wijingconsecration (< wijeto consecrate) we have wijingeconsecration, and next to haaiïnghaymaking (< haaieto make hay) we find haaiïngehaymaking. In a few cases the variant -inge is lexicalized and therefore has survived, for example printingeedition, from printsjeto print.
