Notes. 1. The tables represent only the most typical and frequent structural elements of Latin and French borrowings.

Though all the affixes represented in the tables are Latin or French borrowings, some of the examples given in the third column are later formations derived from native roots and borrowed affixes (e. g. eatable, lovable).

By remnant suffixes are meant the ones that are only partially preserved in the structure of the word (e. g. Lat. -ct < Lat. -ctus).

It seems advisable to sum up what has been said in a table.
