French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old French -té, from the Latin suffix -itātem, accusative of -itās, or from -tātem, accusative of -tās in some cases. Cognate to the French suffix -ité.

The suffix -té is inherited from Latin via Vulgar Latin, Old French and Middle French (so called mot populaire), whereas -ité is borrowed directly from Latin (so called mot savant).
