    Alaikum salam!

    I am not aware that -ing is a suffix. I only know ing as a preposition: at, to , on, etc.
    Could you give an example of -ing as suffix?

    Hi, i think you can replace the -ing with -e, that will sound more familiar for me:
    1. Agama agamane aji.
    2. Miturut cabang Déwan Pangreksa Alam, petir iki nyamber sawijine pavilyun ing kira-kira jam 17:00 wektu Amérika Wétan ing Hamonasset Beach State Park.
    3. Alas iku wangun kauripan sing kasebar ing saindhene donya.
    4. Kang padha murih ing pengaleme wong.

    However, although I speak Javanese for daily conversation, I find it difficult to understand those sentences since the words are no longer (or limitedly) used now.
