Type: derivational
Function: superlative
Language: Celtic
Phonemic analysis: -/isam/-
From PIE: *-ism̥h₂-
From Proto-Celtic: *-isam-
Attestation: akluśamoualos


Superlative suffix. The suffix variant without /i/ can be due to syncope, or generalised from forms in *°s-isam-, where /i/ was regularly syncopated (Stifter 2012b: 256 f.).
