[moeller] pacalici, (remember please of latin pacalis:-),
zgribulici, aici, ici ( the short form of aici=here),
somnorici and so on.. there are too much to put them here.
In the rumanian "ici " has as aufix more an diminutival role.
But not every whee: bici, shorici are normal substantives
where it seems that "ici " is not a suffix at all.
