definition of the word -ical

by the Wiktionnary

Combination of -ic French -ique, from Latin -icus, related to Ancient Greek suffix -ικός (-ikos), plus -al from Latin adjective suffix -alis, or French -el.

-ical

  1. Used to form adjectives from nouns with the meaning "of or pertaining to"; adjectival suffix appended to various words, often nouns, to make an adjective form. Often added to words of Latin origin, but used with other words also.
    mythical
    theistical
    whimsical

Often redundant to the use of -ic alone; for example, mythic and mythical are identical in meaning. For words that naturally end in -ic such as magic and statistic, the addition is only of -al.
