EtymologyEdit

From Old French -ification, in turn from Latin -ficātiō, a noun ending related to the supine ending -ficātum of first-conjugation verbs ending in -ficō (English -ify), derived from compounding with faciō.

SuffixEdit

-ification

  1. The process of becoming.

Usage notesEdit

Occurs in words of French or Latin origin, but also productive, instead of expected *-ifation, from -ify (become) + -ation (process of); compare -ability.
