WH-interrogatives + -oo.

The clitic suffix oo when added to verbs expressed doubt about the likelihood of an occurrence. When this suffix is added to WH-interrogatives, we get what have been referred to as `indeterminate' pro-forms.

Sometimes ͢ؿ ettaneyoo is reduplicated ͢׺׿ؿ ettaneyettaneyoo to mean `unbelievable amounts; unfathomable quantities; lots and lots'. ػ edoo may be used adjectivally to mean `some'.

We do not find endavoo of course, since a Noun must intervene.
