Re: adverb suffixes???

The reason {vajHa'} doesn't exist is because it doesn't make sense. In 
English (or any other natural language), we don't say, "Unthus I went there." 
It doesn't make sense. Perhaps all adverbs that have meanings with {-Ha'} can 
take {-Ha'}.

Now, a question. Do we know of any adverbs that take {-be'} or any other verb
