All forms conform to an interesting algerithm. I think it
goes like this. From the end of the word you go stepwise
(phoneme by phoneme) to the left. If you encounter an
"r", the suffix will be "-alis". If you encounter an
"l", the suffix will be "-aris". If you encounter
neither, it will be "-alis", apparently the default.
The algerithm goes through the complete word,
hence you get "liminaris", where the "l"
that triggers the "-aris" is pretty far away.
However, I am not a Latinist and I just had
a short look at it.

re: Query from Bruce Fraser on "Putting People Down"
You may wish to consult some of the vast literature on this topic which
circulates around and often finds its way into the pages of MALEDICTA, The
International Journal of Verbal Aggression.
