The unproductive, originally non-native suffix -emint may sporadically be attached to nouns, also to native ones. An example with a collective result is kaak jaw which becomes kakemint the lower and upper jaw. In other cases, -emint seems to add a kind of strengthening effect at most, for example in soartemint kind next to soarte kind. Nouns ending in -emint are always neuter.


More information on this suffix, which primarily takes verbal bases, can be found in -emint with verb as base.
