Would *ealima be a possible and comprehendable neologism/variant for 'possible'?

For the sense “possible” = “might exist”, I think it would work. But I think cárima “able to be done” would work in many cases as well. For example:

carpie vinya Eldarin cárima ná “speaking Neo-Eldarin is possible”

+Tamas Ferencz So ēŋ(ā)-imā > ēŋimā > ēimā > eimā > eima > éma isn’t transparent? 😜

+Robert Reynolds clear as mud :)

I actually really like the version where A-stem verbs employ the ending -lima, I think it yields very clear and melodic results.
