The Suffix -ist

1. Earlier you saw that the suffix -er changes verbs into nouns with the meaning “one that does”:

&\underset{\text{verb}}{\text{teach}} + \text{er} = \underset{\text{noun}}{\text{teacher}} \ (“\text{one who teaches}”)\\&\underset{\text{verb}}{\text{burn}} + \text{er} = \underset{\text{noun}}{\text{burner}} \ (“\text{one that burns}”)

The suffix -ist changes nouns, verbs, and adjectives into nouns, with the meaning “one that works with, is connected with, or believes in” the thing referred to in the stem:

&\underset{\text{noun}}{\text{harp}} + \text{ist} = \underset{\text{noun}}{\text{harpist}} \ \text{(“one who plays a harp”)} \\&\underset{\text{verb}}{\text{reform}} + \text{ist} = \underset{\text{noun}}{\text{reformist}} \ \text{(“one who believes that things should be reformed”)} \\&\underset{\text{adjective}}{\text{pure}} + \text{ist} = \underset{\text{noun}}{\text{purist}} \ \text{(“one who believes that things should be pure”)}
