inflectional suffix
Definition - A suffix that is used to form a grammatical variant of a word, e.g. the inflectional suffix -ed changes verbs into their past tense (want --> wanted).

As opposed to derivational suffixes, which change words of one syntactic category into words of another syntactic category, e.g. the derivational suffix -ly changes adjectives into adverbs (quick --> quickly).
