The suffix -ize (or similar) are used to form verbs from nouns and adjectives in several Romance languages.

Wiktionary suggests that this stems from the vulgar latin -izo, -izare, -izavi, -izatum, which (ultimately) is borrowed from Ancient Greek.

It seems to me that there are no Latin literature which use this suffix. Even the Vicipaedia page for factorisation is "In factores resolutio".

Is it proper usage to append this suffix to words in Latin?
