Kaltxì ma frapo.

I was thinking of making a sign reminding me to take my medicine, so I was going to ask if we have a word or phrase for 'medicine'?

Also can you have more than one infix in a word? Was thinking about zeyko and about making it into 'healing' by adding <us>. If you can, in what order should the infixes be placed in? Z<eyk><us>o or z<us><eyk>o? Thought I could use 'healing air' for the stuff I'm inhaling, and the 'medicine' part for the pills.

Thanks in advance :)

(In case someone was wondering, I have Cystic Fibrosis. It's a very mild form so there's no problem.)

We do not have such a word yet.

You can have one of each type (or position) of infix.  So, since ‹eyk› is a pre-first position infix, and ‹us› is a first position infix, they can coexist in the same verb.  The order is z‹eyk›‹us›o.

Hehe, totally missed that <eyk> goes in position <0> :P

Any idea what I could use instead of medicine? Healing "something"? Maybe I could use Zeyk<us>o-a 'u.

That might be a little misleading, as the participle infixes in fact cannot be used together with affect (second position) infixes.

Slightly OT: where would <äp>, which is the other <0> position infix, go in these <eyk> verbs like tìsraw s<eyk>i and z<eyk>o?  Is it before or after the <eyk>?

So yes, reflexive before causative.

So, the  general infix order is t<reflexive><causative><1>ar<2>on?

For medicine, how about zeyko txum?

By any chance, if you don't mind me asking, do you know the generic name of your medication? I might be able to come up with some interesting ideas based on what the medicine is chemically (I grew up in a pharmacy, and read my dad's journals before he did!).

Well, we got Kreon/Creon, Bisolvon, Ursofalk, Acetylcysteine, Ventoline and some multivitamins. Probably forgot something :P

Wow, what a mishmash! With something like that I think zeyko txum is still good  :P

Well, yeah, but that's gramatically incorrect. Zeyko is a verb, if you want to get "poison that heals" you must use a: txum a zeyko or zeyko a txum.

Humblea tì'efumì oeyä, säzeyko is a good word.

Oer wivìntxu ngal oey keyeyt krr a tse'a sat. Frakrr.
