[Lingtyp] morphological borrowings apart from lexical ones

Dear colleagues,

Have you ever thought of morphological borrowings (especially of nominal
plural suffixes) that happened independently of massive lexical borrowings
from the source language?

I am thinking of a situation wherein a plural nominal suffix was admittedly
borrowed  from Akkadian into a variety of Aramaic (a sister language of
Akkadian), while this variety of Aramaic does not have a sizeable amount of
outspoken lexical Akkadisms.

Have you ever seen this kind of evidence in better understood and/or living

Thank you
