For some reason, the internet is making us incredibly angry. It’s making us argue past the point of reason. It’s making us set up fake Twitter accounts to harass the outspoken. And it’s making us avoid the comments section of websites, because we’re afraid of what we’ll find down there.
Suffixes are superb inventions. They can take a boring, humdrum word and turn it into something wonderful. Using the right suffix will help you create unforgettable portmanteaus that hook the reader and don’t let go.

How many great pieces of advertising copy break the rules?
