Hiligaynon (Philipines, island of Panay) has a few:
Ka- -an - collective noun:
Kabataan - youth, children stem: bata - child
kasagingan - banana plantation stem: saging - banana
kamaisan - cornfield stem: mais - corn
it also seems to have a similar function like -ness:
kabudlayan - difficulty, harship stem: budlay - hard, difficult
kamaayohan - goodness stem: maayo - good, well
ka- -on: forms nouns. Seems to have a sense of time, or state:
kaagahon - early morning. stem: aga - morning
kagab-ihon - deep night. stem: gabi - night
kamatayon - death. stem: patay - to die, dead, to put out (fire), to switch off
kina- -an: abstract stative nouns
ma- -an: source does not tell its use.
This is from: http://www.copewithcytokines.de/NAGATUON/cope.cgi?006539
shows all Hiligaynon affixes.
The damage we do by the hopes that we raise.
Hell really IS paved with good intentions.
