Words with affixes?

I would love to get a list of words with the different affixes.

I know that -ar- mens a collection. But it's not that easy. arbaro is a forrest (a collection of trees). vortaro is a dictionary (a collection words) But according to my vortaro, libraro isn't a library as I would have guessed, - but 'just' a bookcollection. A library would be a biblioteko

I am not asking for examples, which you have just made up yourself, but "real" usually used examples.

Also with other affixes:

-uj- I know mono (money), monujo (a purse/wallet). But there must be a lot of usually used examples here too.

What about -acx-? What about -ajx-? What about -em-? What about -er-? What about -il-? What about -um-?

If you have examples with other affixes I am also interested, but mostly these. I would love to get 3-5 normally used examples of each.

Thank you very much!

You might like to check out David K. Jordan's 'Being Colloquial in Esperanto'. It's a free web resource (as well as a published book) which clarifies a number of questions about the practical use of Esperanto.

Included in it is a large section on affixes, with several examples of common words with each affix. That section is available here: http://pages.ucsd.edu/~dkjordan/eo/colloq/colloq130.html


Thanks - What you and J.R. Nogal wrote is exactly what I am looking for. Thanks!
