Dear Nina, Jim and Mahinda,
thanks again for your corrections and refinements, especially the discussion of naamanaama and pavattanato. Indeed, I am glad to hear it is a better attempt this time.
I refine the last sentence as follows,
Manifold, indeed, the suffixes are, from/on account of (their) occurring among the various substantives, primary (verbal) derivatives, compounds, secondary (nominal) derivatives and verbs.

MP: I would prefer 'occuring' to 'occurences'.
