Etymology 1Edit

Form of -ālis with dissimilation of -l- to -r- after roots containing an l.

Alternative formsEdit


-āris (neuter -āre); third-declension two-termination suffix

  1. Used to form an adjective, usually from a noun, indicating a relationship or a pertaining to.
Usage notesEdit

The suffix -āris is added to a noun to form an adjective of relationship to that noun.

mīlitāris (military, of a soldier), from mīles (soldier)
oculāris (ocular, of the eye), from oculus (eye)
sōlāris (solar, of the sun), from sōl (sun)

If the root word or its stem does not contain an l, then the form -ālis generally is used instead. Sometimes both forms are found, e.g. līneālis and līneāris, from līnea (line).
