Many of the verbs that describe emotions follow a similar pattern.
First, there is a basic form used to describe the emotion someone is feeling:
||I am happy.|
For the basic form we take the root of the verb, and in many cases, add the affix -suk- followed by the simple verb endings:
|kappia-||to be afraid|
|kappiasuktuuk||The two of them are afraid.|
|quvia-|| to feel happy
|quviasuppiit?|| Are you happy?
|kappiagijara||I am afraid of her.|
For the more complex form, the affix -gi- / -ri- is added to the root verb, followed by a double person ending (see grammar notes from lesson 15).
|iliragijaatigut||She is intimidated by all of us.|
|kappiagiviuk?||Are you afraid of it?|
|piugijara||I like it.|
Note that -ri- is used after verb roots that end in q:
|mamaqtuq||It tastes good.|
|mamarijanga||It tastes good to her.|
