Grammar » -sinnaaq- (affix)

This affix is added to a verb stem to indicate that an action or event will be happening at the same time as something else:

Nattiqsiusinnaalaaqtugut.   We will be seal hunting at the same time.

This affix deletes the final consonant of roots to which it is added:

iqqanaijasinnaaqtut iqqanaijaq + sinnaaq + tut
They work at the same time (as they do something else).
