ؽ poodu `malicious intent'.

For dialects where ؽ poodu is not just a variant of (v)idu `completive', we place it here among the primarily attitudinal aspect markers. Note that phonologically, ؽԥ poottu the AVP form, is often reduced to puttu or ptu as in ե vittuptu `having definitely (mischievously) left' and Ԥե saappittuptu `having eaten'.
