Unfortunately I don't have as much time to learn Japanese as I would like, and therefore I am rather inactive on this forum. Yet I have learnt so much just by reading the "Recent Posts" page every once in a while. I respect those who have taken the time to write up explanations to help others, especially those who have written in a language which is not their native language.

The thread wasn't 'how many can you find with Edict', so I thank tsumeshogi for posting that as a link.

There's also a whole series of adjectives ( always negative, as far I as can remember) which are formed with something + がましい, which I suppose we can also include:

eg.
恩を着せる => 恩着せがましい (negative: acting like you're doing a big favour for someone)
