I've undone the reversion of my edit of 17 Jan, on the basis that my edit was made in good faith and no reasoning is given for the reversion. If there is a genuine difference of opinion on what the second usage note should say then I'm happy to discuss. 188.8.131.52 18:09, 22 January 2006 (UTC)
Can u Give examples of those nouns formed from verbs by the suffix -ess. AsaP
-or as a "feminizing" suffix?
The suffix "-or" is listed under "Synonyms" as being a "female suffix", just like "-ess". Is this a mistake? The others are pretty obvious (e.g., -a, -ette, -euse, -rix, she-), but I can't come up with an example for -or. Can someone else? - dcljr 01:15, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
