    what is the difference between "susceptible" and "susceptive" ?

    Are these two words ("susceptible" and "susceptive") the same for meaning and grammer?

    Thanks a lot

    Welcome to the forums, jasminina.

    The two words mean the same. However, the former is far more common than the latter.

    The Fraze.It website quotes over 5,000 examples of 'susceptible' in context and only two for 'susceptive' (click on the underlined link).

    Jasminina, your thanks are very welcome but there is no need to write a new post to say "Thank you" (and certainly no need for two consecutive posts for the same thing). Simply click the Like button on any post you find helpful. That saves us all opening a thread to read a new post, only to find that it does not include a follow-up question or more information about the original question.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
