I don't think it's taken this long because it's too hard. It's just that the only person guessing has been too busy to keep the game moving along.

Anyway, was the <e> originally *e?

Yes! Well, it's a little bit more narrow than that. Generally used more like "mercy, compassion, sympathy".

I’m not sure what you mean by “sufficient”, but they’re both nouns.
Edit: Actually, I should probably mention that the -s- is a suffix, but it’s not relevant to the meaning.

"Sufficient" is my stupid phone's auto-correct for "suffixing".
