And a nice example from a Paula Zahn CNN interview with Donnie Deutch, CEO of Deutch Inc., in which (if we can trust the transcriber), Zahn uses appreciable in her question and Zahn replies with appreciative:

“ZAHN: I’m still having trouble understanding, though. What is the appreciable difference between “Joe Millionaire” this year and last year?

DEUTSCH: Well, to me it’s zero or zero. I mean, personally. But I think the appreciative difference is it’s not new anymore. It was a novelty. Eighteen million people tuned into the first episode last year, 6 million less the last year.”
