This week we will be examining the suffix-otkis. This is a suffix attached to verbs to make nouns. This noun means: the tool, instrument or the thing utilized to make the meaning of the verb happen. This suffix does not create one noun but usually a group of nouns as usually more than one item can make the verb happen.
An example is: sle-a + -otkis=sle-otkis. What is used to make the action of this verb happen?
The tool, instrument or the thing that makes the act of seeing take place.
1. a pair of glasses
2. a microscope
3. a telescope
4. a spy glass
5. a magnifying glass
I am sure that other items would qualify. This is just a quick list of items that came to mind while I was writing this. Normally the context of the conversation would indicate the item intended.
humasht ni e-algat, ni sle-otkis gi. So I can read, I have a pair of glasses.
