A common suffix is –al. Adding –al changes a noun into an adjective.
-al can mean for or of. The drum is a (musical) instrument.
The drum is a instrument of/for music.
Notice how the noun follows the adjective with the –al ending.

Nouns the have the letter ‘e’ at the end, should be changed. Drop the ‘e’ before adding a vowel like –al.
