The current post in one of my favourite curate’s egg sites include this oft-trotted out table of alleged statistics about prefixes.

 

Prefixes-HM

 

Since it appears in documents called “research” it is treated as infallible citation fodder. To question its validity would be regarded by the approvers of what is approved of as a heinous combination of lèse-majesté and heresy.

So here’s a little exercise for you.

1. Play this tutorial.

 

{mov}Prefix_basic{/mov}

 

2. Demonstrate that at least four of the supposed ‘prefixes’ in the table are falsely presented as such.
