1、de- "from" or pejorative + -ceiv- + -e.
- deceive:  Etymologically, to deceive someone is to ‘catch’ or ‘ensnare’ them. The word comes ultimately from Latin dēcipere ‘ensnare, take in’, a compound verb formed from the pejorative prefix dē- and capere ‘take, seize’ (source of English capture and a wide range of related words). It passed into English via Old French deceivre and decevoir. English has two noun derivatives of deceive: deceit  comes ultimately from the past participle of Old French decevoir, while deception  comes from dēcept-, the past participial stem of Latin dēcipere.
