  1. 1 - 3 = correct

    4 = unsure; prefixes and suffixes should have meanings of their own, which expand the meaning of the root word. This is not so with this word.

  3. Yes, it comes from "scribe" -- and I suppose your answer in your first post is correct. But I would never list -le as a suffix!
