      Preparation of an important update for LdP is under way. Besides changing -ia to -o, there will be some news. Thus, a new sufix -wat for object of action is introduced:

      pechi - pechiwat (smth baked)
      kapti - kaptiwat (smth/smb captured)
      pi - piwat (a drink)
      chi - chiwat (mangxajxo)

      The suffix derives from Hindi's "wat", as in
      banaana (build, construct) - banaawat (structure)

      Previously we had -ato but it's best if a suffix starts with a consonant and can be just added to a verb.

      The suffix for the end result of action is -tura, and one can distinguish mixiwat (smth that is mixed, an ingredient) and mixitura (the end result of mixing), solviwat (smth that is dissolved) and solvitura (solution).

      It should be noted however that the suffix -wat should be added only when it's really needed, as often one can do simply with -o:
      adi (add) - ado (addition).
      Ado stands both for action and its result. To stress result, one can use adiwat.
      Or:
      findi - findo
      To stress the meaning "smth found" one can say findiwat.
