Oh, so you agree that nine out of ten would agree that it is an adjective?
Or is that a typo on your part?         ;-)

The correctness of the proposition is not a voting issue.

That nouns, adverbs and adjectives are derived from verbs by adding a -YT
suffix leaves open the possibility that in this case, this is an example of
such a derivation. Therefore the lack of an )$R in this phrase is not an
anomaly, but expected because of what words are used. That’s how I see it.
