English Makes Sense!

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




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.

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