English term or phrase: the continuous prefix ‘mi’
Greetings,

How do you describe (with precision) the continuous prefix ‘mi’ in Persian?

Perhaps the name you use is different from the one I have just assigned it in English.

But what I mean is the می in می‌سازم, for example.

Presumably you must have some way of referring to it and describing it.

All the best, and many thanks,

Simon
