-ich
quickinfo

Only in a few cases can the suffix -ich, or rather its variant -erich, be added to an adverb, to derive an adjective with the meaning "with a tendency to {adverb}". The relevant derivations are fuortaway > fuorterichto like going out and útout > uterichfrequently going out.

The suffix -ich is quite productive in taking other lexical categories as a base: nouns, verbs and other adjectives.
