  • Also -ata (fem) and -ato (neuter). An adjectival suffix that means "having a lot of (that noun)". For example, a woman with big breasts (breast="sisa") can be called "sisata", a man with a big nose is "nosat", one with big ears (ear="uho") is "ušat", and someone with a big ass can be "guzat" or "guzata". It's a very productive suffix. As for English equivalents, we can say "breasty" to mean the same as "sisata", but "nosy" and "assy" mean something else, and there is no "earsy" at all. Quelle dommage.
