Peoplese Suffixes

Suffixes always follow hyphenets (half-length hyphens), and always adhere to their unique meaning.
Word-endings, by contrast, are added to root words without hyphens, word-endings' meanings vary.

The spelling and pronunciation of the root word does not change after adding the suffix.

Below, a complete list of Peoplese suffixes.  Far left column in Alike English; far right column is Sound Spell Same (pure Peoplese).
