Proto-Haxyakian uses a variety of infixes, suffixes, prefixes, and reduplication to derive new verbs from old ones. Below shows the four most productive and common morphemes, using xíñ "to brandish, to scrape (tr.)" as an example:
Durative -mō-/-vō- (nasal consonant present)xívōñto brandish or scrape for awhile
Frequentative ka-kaxíñto brandish or scrape frequently
Intensive C₁V₁-/-as (laryngeal consonant present)xixíñto brandish or scrape with greater force than normal
Attenuative -inxíñinto brandish or scrape with less force than normal

Below is a list of less productive morphemes:
