Neoclassical noun formation: Suffixation



This type of noun formation adds a suffix to a neoclassical formative to form a new noun. Many of these suffixes are also used in "normal" suffixation.

herb + arium = Herbarium
hydr + at = Hydrat
phon + em = Phonem
phob + ie = Phobie
angl + ismus = Anglismus
angl + ist = Anglist
neur + om = Neurom
psych + ose = Psychose

Noun suffixes that can be added to neoclassical formatives:

an arium ase asma
asmus ast at azee
e em ese ett
id ie ik ikum
in ismus ist it
ität ium ol om
on ose yl
