EtymologyEdit

From Old Norse -ari, from Proto-Germanic *-ōzô.

SuffixEdit

-are

  1. (on adjectives) Regular construction of comparative: ful(ugly)fulare(uglier)
  2. (on verbs) Denotes a person or object who (regularly) performs the action of the verb: klättra(climb)klättrare(climber)
  3. Used to form the names of residents or inhabitants of particular places; in particular towns/cities: Stockholmstockholmare(Stockholmer). Note that the resulting word is not capitalized.

Usage notesEdit

If added to a a-final stem, the two adjacent a:s merge into one single a. The nouns get the common gender and have what in Swedish is called "nollplural"; when the plural form is the same as the singular form.
