quickinfo

The prefix alden-, a univerbation of the universal quantifier alall and an old case form of the definite article dethe, may both derive adverbs and numerals. It takes interjections as base, more in particular swear words like duvel!hell! or bliksem!hell!. This results in derivations like aldenduvel or aldenbliksem. The derived adverbs always have the meaning all the time.
