quickinfo

The suffix -ear can be used to derive verbs from non-native adjectives. An example is aktyfactive > aktivearjeto activate. After /l/, /n/ and /r/ we see the linking element -is-, for example in modernmodern > modernisearjeto modernize. The stress is always on the element -ear, i.e. as modernisEARje.
