According to my notes it is also found in Armenian, but I'm suspicious. G W
Campbell's "Bluebird Book of Languages for Children to collect on Holiday"
(or whatever the title is) suggests that the -l- is an infinitive, and so
participial forms such as those in -elis/-alis, and the so-called "future
gerund" in -lu could simply be based on the infinitive.
Anyone got better knowledge of Armenian?
