Referring to our discussion about future imperfect participles I just wanted to repost this sheet I started to put together some time ago, collecting attested verbs and verbal roots, constructing possible derivations using attested suffixes and assigning possible meanings. It neatly shows the power of suffixation and can provide further resource for NeoQuenya purposes. Anyone with the link can add to the list.

In the adjective férima is presented as coming from ferya-. Since we have, I'm assuming that the participle of the type of ferya- would still be *?feryanwa and not *?férinwa.

+ܤܡܝ ܦܠܕܢܝܘܤ that's a good question but perhaps turyanwa points to *feryanwa being correct.
I hesitated a lot before I put the form *xéyanwa in the table; I accept that it's twice contestable as already the verb itself is a reconstruction. If we go by the férima example, then the form here would probably be *xienwa?
