The entry for "-abilis" gives its etymology as Latin, habilis.

However the online etymology dictionary suggests this is a common misconception, and the etymology of the suffix "-able" is actually unrelated to the etymology of "able".

Thank you for bringing this to our attention; I have fixed the entry in question. In the future, such posts should be made at Wiktionary:Etymology scriptorium. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 05:00, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
