In Senecal/Anniversary, I see that there is a disjoined -st suffix for -stic/stique, and a disjoined A (is it really an A-circle?) for -tique. I would have two questions :
1/Senecal says that critique and pratique should not be applied the -tique suffix. I can’t figure out why, especially given that the English version doesn’t have this restriction (see critic).
2/Would it be somehow detrimental to simplify these two suffixes by merging them, using a disjoined T in both instances, and simply adding an S at the end of the root in the case of “stic”? I’m thinking of doing just this but I hope it won’t create any confusion later on.
