Those aren't actually infixes, but rather, a string of suffixes. Infixes go inside the *root*, like in Uatakassí, -la- is the superlative. It goes after the first vowel/glide, so that tiká (old) becomes tilaká (oldest). -- Cenedl heb iaith, cenedl heb galon A nation without a language is a nation without a heart - Welsh proverb ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTaylor42
