Is there an accepted name for a derivational process applied to a verb which conveys the meaning "feign or pretend to do sth".
As a corollary, is anyone aware of any languages (especially non-polysynthetic ones) that possess such a derivational process (e.g. using an affix)?
I do know of one already, Iñupiatun Eskimo, in which the affix -ŋŋuaq- does this, cf. the full verb stem piŋŋuaq- (Seiler 2012: s.vv.):
Qichaq pretends to sing.
However, Iñupiatun Eskimo has such a huge number of derivational affixes that it is a different kind of animal to less extremely polysynthetic languages.
