It’s a suffix and höc is the root.
Is it a verbal root?

Hmm, tough to answer without giving too much away. The Initial <h> does correspond to an initial *h grapheme but it doesn’t necessarily correspond to the phoneme /x/. I’m trying to be as precise in my language as I can be to answer, give a sufficient hint, and not give it away.

Oh wow, this looks like it could be quite challenging.

Is it a noun phrase?
