In English, you can suffix a word with "-er" to indicate increasing intensity, like "loud"->"louder". It's really an intensity vector, but the direction is based on the root word, e.g. "soft"->"softer" indicates less volume, not more. What if there was a suffix that indicated decreasing intensity on its own? E.g. "loud"->"loudes" means "less loud" and "softes" means "less soft" or equal to "louder". Do other languages have this?
