If assuming that -:

The ability of being 'Accessible'= Accessibility
The ability of being 'Read'= Readability
The ability of being 'Scanned'= Scanability

So

The ability of being Interacted to/with = ?
The ability of being Trusted = ?
The ability of being Navigated = ?
The ability of being Understood = ?
The ability of being Felt (feel) = ?
The ability of being Find = ? The ability of being Customized = ?
The ability of being Adaptive = ?

Please tell me the appropriate words (ending with bility).

  • The ability of being Interacted to/with = n/a (you can say that something is interactive, or the interactive nature/quality of sth)
  • The ability of being Trusted = trustability / trustworthiness
  • The ability of being Navigated = navigability
  • The ability of being Understood = understandability
  • The ability of being Felt (feel) = n/a
  • The ability of being Find = findability
  • The ability of being Customized = customizability
  • The ability of being Adaptive = adaptivity/ adaptabilty
  • How about sensibility for being felt ? – Omid Jan 27 '14 at 16:52
  • It's the opposite, it's the ability to feel or perceive – MdMazzotti Jan 27 '14 at 16:53

    Adaptability is ok. Interoperability has a different meaning than being interacted with; it is the ability of a system to provide services to and accept services from other systems – MdMazzotti Jan 27 '14 at 17:04

    I think trustworthiness would be preferred over of trustability, and I like adaptabilty more than adaptivity. However, all four are legitimate words, so there's nothing "wrong" with your suggestions. – J.R. Jan 27 '14 at 17:06

    What kind of "feeling" are we talking about here? Tactile sensations? Empathy? Emotion? A premonition or sixth sense? A strong opinion about something? Feel is a rather flexible word with several definitions; I can feel how the ice is cold, I can feel how the sandpaper is rough, I can feel sorry that your grandmother died, I can feel exuberant that my favorite team won a championship, I can feel that it's going to rain soon, I can feel that euthanasia is wrong, and I can feel confused about which meaning of feel you are asking about. – J.R.

It is not possible for all such words to end with "bility".
The ability of being accessible is not "accessibility" but the degree to which it is accessible. ( same is true for readability). Furthermore,the ability of being accessed is "accessible" and the degree to which it is accessible is "accessibility".

I can tell a few of terms for the above mentioned phrases-:
The ability of being felt-: palpability.
The ability of being trusted-: trustworthiness.

  • I made an assumption dude! – Omid Jan 27 '14 at 16:45
  • What assumption ? Clarify to me. – Inquist Jan 27 '14 at 16:47

    These are adjectives, I think the OP was looking for nouns – MdMazzotti Jan 27 '14 at 16:55

    The ability of doing or being something, is a noun. Having this ability is an adjective. Can you see the difference? – MdMazzotti Jan 27 '14 at 17:01

    @Inquist being comprehensive doesn't necessarily imply being understandable – MdMazzotti Jan 27 '14 at 17:16
