The suffix -ich derives adjectives from verbs. Examples are ridelje shiver > ridelich shaking and jildich valid from jilde to count. In many cases, the variant -erich is employed, for instance hoasterich coughy from the verb hoastje to cough. Derivations with a verbal base have the meaning "with a tendency to {verb}", for example frette have a nibble > fretterich liking eating a lot.

The suffix -ich is quite productive. It also takes nouns, other adjectives, and even adverbs as a base.


Derivations which have a verb as base are further discussed in the topic on -ich with a noun as base.
