The suffix mäßig

 
 
The suffix mäßig is relatively frequently used to form adjectives. It has the meaning of wie in comparisons (e.g. heldenmäßig), or it generally means in Bezug auf (e.g. altersmäßig). It can very freely be added to all kinds of nouns.

Derivation type:

Noun to adjective

Gesetz + mäßig = gesetzmäßig
Hobby hobbymäßig
Instinkt instinktmäßig
All derivations

Features:
  • e-deletion:
    Most nouns ending in an unstressed e are not directly combined with mäßig (the linking element en is inserted, see below). When the suffix is directly added to the noun, the unstressed e is deleted:
    Erbe + mäßig = erbmäßig
    Schule schulmäßig
    Exceptions: foreign nouns such as routinemäßig, usancemäßig.
  • With linking element:
    Often, a linking element is inserted between the noun stem and the suffix. The most frequently used linking elements are en and s:
    Bühne + en + mäßig = bühnenmäßig
    Zahl zahlenmäßig
    Alter + s + mäßig = altersmäßig
    Leistung leistungsmäßig
    Kraft + e + mäßig = kräftemäßig
    All derivations
