* ATE and Ex, in common with FY, IFY, and IZE, are defined above by the phrase " to make;" becauso they are commonly used to form verbs. This phrase, "to make," is taken, as a definition, merely for the sake of convenience. In many cases, other definitions, as "to cause," "to put," &c., will be found more suitable. Sometimes the suffix is the mere sign of a verb; as locate, to place.

Besides this use, however, ATE and EN, as is seen in the text, to which may be added the suffix ED, are employed to form participles and participial adjectives; and, are then defined by such phrases as, "made of," "made into," "made, or formed like," "having," " affected by," &c.
