Grammar

-liq- (affix)

 

 The affix -liq- is added to verbs to emphasize that an action is happening right now:

 angirraqtuq  She goes home.
 angirraliqtuq  She is going home right now.

 

 

When -liq- is added to a root ending in a consonant, it deletes the final consonant:
 aullaq + tuq =
 aullaqtuq He departs.
 aullaq + liq + tuq =
 aullaliqtuq He is departing right now.
