If the root descends from Classical Latin, did its ancestor begin with <v->?

[tick] [tick] Yes. The word does come from Classical Latin, but has been slightly altered by analogy.

Does the affix (I presume a suffix) come from -urnus? and if it doesn't is there a part internal to the suffix that's elided?

[cross] The suffix isn't from -urnus, no. It is from a verb ending. Without the analogy I mentioned, the word would probably be vescern.

so *vesc- comes from a verb of some sort? Does the /sc/ come from SC in Latin? If so, is it from VESCOR, meaning something like "a happy eater"?
