{krĭ} is used for creative compositions, not for building physical
things or for ex nihilo creation.

{-pja} is an amateur/avocational agentive suffix in contrast to {tu-}
"someone who's doing (verb stem) at the moment" and {-tla} "someone
who does (verb stem) for a living".  David Peterson for instance is
both {krĭ-gjâ-pja}  w.r.t. Kamakawi and  {krĭ-gjâ-tla} w.r.t.
Dothraki.
