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.
