- -ive; used in forming adjectives denoting characteristics or qualities.
- roughly equivalent to -ive or sometimes -ish; used in forming adjectives denoting characteristics or qualities, especially relating to color
- auriu, arămiu, căpriu, castaniu, cenușiu, corbiu, cărămiziu, cafeniu, portocaliu, albăstriu, negriu, gălbiu, ruginiu, sângeriu, tuciuriu, etc.
The terms formed from the suffix often have the meaning of approximating or being similar to a certain quality (from the noun or adjective it modifies); it can be comparable to some uses of -ish in English: somewhat, approximately, slightly, rather: e.g. cenușiu- grayish, albăstriu- bluish. A suffix playing a similar role in Romanian is also -ui, especially with colors.
