-orio (Suffix) Forming adjectives and substantives.
A collapse of the Latin suffix -orium, neuter, and -orius, masculine, which had different meanings in either gender. In the neuter, the suffix played a locative noun-forming role, while in the masculine the suffix formed adjectives. Originally, however, the suffix formed only adjectives. From -or and -ius/-ium (see -ío).
