Unifying concept for noun-adjectives of the pattern Xかな?

Consider these: - ~か: >- 静か >- 愚か >- 厳か - ~やか: >- 穏やか >- 鮮やか >- 賑やか - ~らか: >- 柔らか >- 滑らか >- 明らか There are many more that I've not listed. The か/やか/らか at the end of these words seem to suggest that they stem from a common grammar construct. What is it? And does it mean anything?
