Title: Latin Suffixal Derivatives in English
Subtitle: and Their Indo-European Ancestry
Written By: GaryD.Miller
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199285051
Description:

This is the fullest account ever published of Latin suffixes in English. It
explores the rich variety of English words formed by the addition of one or
more Latin suffixes, such as ial, -able, -ability, -ible, and -id. It
traces the histories of over 3,000 words and reveals the range of
derivational patterns in Indo-European, Latin, and English. It makes an
important contribution to the history of English and Latin morphology and
etymology, as well as to the history of suffixal derivation in Indo-European.
