    There is no "definition" of the suffix "-able"


    A suffix that forms adjectives from verbs and nouns.
    1. That which can be — ed: Enjoyable = that which can be enjoyed.
    2. Giving —; suitable for —: Comfortable = giving comfort.
    3. Inclined to — ed: Peaceable = inclined to peace.
    4. Deserving to be — ed: Lovable = deserving to be loved.
    5. Liable to be — ed: Breakable = liable to be broken.

    deplorable > that which is to be deplored
