The word-endings -ducir, -locar, -vocar, -ludir, -mitir are quite common, each can take a lot of common prefixes to form real words, for example:

  • conducir, producir, introducir, aducir, inducir, reducir, seducir, deducir
  • invocar, evocar, equivocar, provocar, convocar, revocar
  • colocar, dislocar
  • aludir, eludir
  • admitir, permitir, submitir, transmitir

Is there an original meaning (maybe in latin) of these word-endings?

All those word-roots have Latin origins as follows:

  • duco : I lead
  • voco : I call
  • loco : I place
  • ludo : I play
  • mitto : I send

Since most of those words have English cognates, I point you to the Internet Wayback Machine's link to the American Heritage Dictionary, which used to be free online, and had good etymologies.
