Suffixes are word parts that appear at the end of many words. Although suffixes do occasionally affect word meaning, they are more likely to reveal what part of speech a word is, as in quickness and quickly Words ending in "ness" are usually nouns. Those ending in "ly" are usually adverbs.

I'd like to know in my example why "ending in something" is used, not "ending with something."
Thank you in advance for your help.
