Pronunciation[edit]

Suffix[edit]

-tōrius m (feminine -tōria, neuter -tōrium); first/second declension

  1. -ory; used to form an adjective

Usage notes[edit]

The suffix -tōrius is added to a participle to create a first- and second-declension adjective.

Examples:
meritōrius (profitable), from meritus (earned), perfect passive participle of mereō (I earn, deserve, merit)
textōrius (of weaving), from textus (woven), perfect passive participle of texō (I weave)

Note that in some cases, where the suffix -ius is added to an agent noun ending in -tor, the result may be difficult or impossible to distinguish from the addition of -tōrius.
