-logue, U.S. -log, repr. Gr. -logos, -logon speaking or treating of, chiefly through F., as analogue, catalogue, dialogue. Now rare or obsolescent in designations of persons (except ideologue, Sinologue), derivs. in -loger, logist, -logian being gen. preferred; cf. †astrologue, †philologue, †theologue and astrologer, philologist, theologian. The living formative is -logist (f. -LOGY + -IST, sometimes after F., e.g. etymologist); -loger survives in ASTROLOGER, -logian in THEOLOGIAN, which are the earliest formations of their kind.
