  1. Nice affix! If I may ask an unimportant terminology question: is “murative” different from “inchoative”?
    Also, I see where you got your root for “beg” ;)


    • Mutative is not the same as inchoative. The former can be thought of as imperfect while the latter is closer to perfective. I hope I’m making some sense.
