    • ese A Middle English form of ease.
    • ese A suffix of Latin origin, added to names of places (towns or countries), properly, to form adjectives meaning ‘of or belonging to’ such a place, and hence (the same being used as nouns by omission of the appropriate noun) to signify
    • ese ‘an inhabitant of’ such a place, or
    • ese the ‘language’ or ‘dialect of’ such a place, as in Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Milanese, Veronese, Viennese, Berlinese, etc. Nouns with this suffix (being originally adjectives) remain unchanged in the plural, though plurals like Chineses (Milton), Portugueses, etc., occur in the literature of the seventeenth century. Nouns in -ese (which are much oftener used in the plural than in the singular) are sometimes popularly regarded as plurals in -s, and give rise to singulars like Chinee, Portuguee. With reference to language, this suffix is sometimes used humorously with the name of a person, as in Johnsonese, Carlylese, etc., the language or style of Dr. Johnson, Carlyle, etc. In burgess the suffix, of earlier introduction, is shortened; in bourgeois, of recent introduction, it retains the French form.
