Does Latin allow the letter 'k' in suffixed words?
Actually, I'm explaining a phenomenon in which English spelling changes...
Consider the following examples:
Likeable, shakeable, makeable - these words are of Germanic origin. They do allow 'k' in words that are suffixed.
- Revoke + able -> revocable but not revokeable/revokable.
- Invoke + able -> invocable but not invokeable/invokable.
- Provoke + able -> provocable but not provokeable/provokable.
They're from Latin revocare, invocare, provocare respectively.
It has to do with their etymologies. They're of Latin origin.
My question is: Does Latin allow the letter k in suffixed words?
Or what's the reason for this? They allow 'c' in the suffixed words but don't allow 'k'. Why?
