iveyk??
« on: December 11, 2010, 12:26:30 pm »
RAn across a 'word' in a post on another forum that is not in the dictionary, and appears to be entirely made of infixes. Note that that the infixes are backwards in this interesting word (normally <eyk> before <iv>.)

From http://forum.learnnavi.org/news-announcements/navi-as-final-jeopardy/

’awa lì’u fte iveyk kifkeyti
’awa lì’u fte iveyk fot nìwotx…


I kind of get the idea that this would mean 'want to cause'. A similar thing can be found in a more normal word (and one of my favorites) zeykivo

In addition to being an infix, eyk is also the verb "lead". Eykeyk = cause to lead. ;D
We learn from our mistakes only if we are made aware of them.
If I make a mistake, please bring it to my attention for karma.
