additive

  1. (mathematics) Proper to be added; positive; -- opposed to subtractive.

I have no idea what this means. Anyone?​—msh210 (talk) 20:45, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

I think it means 'suitable to be added', but like you say, hard to tell. I assume not added by a native English speaker. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:17, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

There is a missing grammatical sense: some languages have an "additive case" (e.g. Veps). Equinox 18:53, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
