Old Church Slavonic[edit]


From Proto-Slavic *-ikъ.


-икъ (-ikŭ)

  1. -er, -or; Deadjectival nominalizing suffix used chiefly to create a masculine agent noun from adjectives in -ин- and passive participles in -ен-.
    Isolated example is златикъ (zlatikŭ, gold coin), which has the suffix appended directly to the root злато (zlato, gold), and has diminutive (or singulative) meaning.
