> I was reading over the 託する thread again, and now that I understand the 科せられる, 処せられる, 発せられる, etc. forms, I was wondering what would the potential form of these verbs be? 科できる, 処できる, and 発できる aren't valid, as is written in that post, so would it be the same as the passive? I've seen 処することができる before, but I was wondering if there was a potential form of the verbs themselves.

I got around a thousand hits on Google for 科し得る, 処し得る, and 発し得る. Sort of old fashioned and formal though.
