Yet another non-suffix. I can find no term that was formed in English by suffixing this. It is not used in compounding, as ceed is not an English word. Words that end in "ceed" are derived from cedere.

The only OneLook reference that has this is a "A Cross Reference of Latin and Greek Elements". This raises the question as to whether we should have entries for such items that direct users to the etyma that lead to such spellings. (There might be more than one, so a hard redirect is not the universal answer.). The persistent tendency of contributors to add such suffixes suggests that we might consider some kind of useful treatment. But sense evolution means that such items are virtually undefinable in themselves.
