Nobody is interested in my puzzle?

 

Come on guys. You need to scan your memories and spot some relations. It´s good for your brains...

 

 

I wouldn´t expect I could come up with any 3-syllable stem but I have found 5 of them so far.

 

Any taker (native speakers included)?

A reverse dictionary could be useful in this. But I don´t think there is one  -  or is there?

Oh, there is still some interest in my puzzle.

 

I will share one of the 3-syllable stems I have found so far:

 

nacaklanacakla

 

nacak = small axe, hatchet

nacakla = cut down (some wood) using a hatchet

nacakla-n- = to be cut down using a hatchet

nacakla-n-acak = those to be cut down using a hatchet

nacakla-n-acak-la = with those to be cut down using a hatchet

What about the infinitive

 

                    ilişiliş ´the manner/action of (some people) touching, handling´?

                    ilişiliş ´the manner/action of (some people) touching, handling´?

 

Actually iliş-iş would give the same meaning. Adding passive (iliş-il-iş makes it more like "... being touched/attached/hooked"

 

Well anyway, but don´t stop there:

iliştiriliştir

iliştir = attach

iliştir-il = to be attached

ilşitir-il- = being attached

iliştiriliş-tir= that must/may be "iliştiriliş"
