-an

ing element meaning "pertaining to," from Latin -anus, in some cases via French -ain, -en.

-ese

ing element, from Old French -eis (Modern French -ois, -ais), from Vulgar Latin, from Latin -ensem, -ensis "belonging to" or "originating in."

-ish

adjectival suffix, from Old English -isc, common Germanic (cognates: Old Norse -iskr, German -isch, Gothic -isks), cognate inutive suffix -iskos. Colloquially attached to hours t

具体什么国家用那个后缀英语中加后缀变成人的有哪些,主要听发音的顺口程度。

有一些国家当时多种后缀并存,最终有一者为了最常用而固定起来。比如16世纪曾经使用过Chinish英语培训,但Chinese更常用而流传。
