Thubhairt Dale:

> Am bitheantas, ciamar a eadar-theangaichear "-able"?

  "ion-" (+ verbal-adjective usually)

e.g. "ionmholta" - praisworthy, laudable
     "ion-choimeasail" - comparible
     "ion-leighis" - curable

Also worth noting:

     "do-leighis" - uncurable
     "so-leighis" - easily cured
     "ion-leighis" - curable

     "do-ghluaiste" - unmoveable
     "so-ghluaiste" - easily moved
     "ion-ghluaiste" - moveable

These prefixes aren't all that producctive, though, these days.
