WORD NATURES

You may have come across this dispute over the word
"antidisestablishmentarian".

First, it looks long. Second, only some guys like such knacks. I don't necessarily go for many fixes. To me, words have natures. My name's Alice.



This   "antidisestablishmentarian"  thing is unnatural. Let us break it into pieces:
anti + dis + establish + ment + arian.

The thing has 4 fixes:   "anti",   "dis",   "ment",   and   "arian".   I mean, you never know what life brings, but we here stay by three fixes max.

Let me tell you about word meaning, before I try to explain on word fixes.

There happen to be those movements, you know, guys getting together and saying now they change the world. Sometimes, I think, this could be about changing only, because their matter does not make sense, and the world keeps on turning.

Like there was that flower-power movement. Guys wanted to show living without economy, that is, without finance.

Me, I'm not a materialist strictly, but honestly, I think money remains one of the cleverest inventions, that along with the wheel, and whatever might make little sense, not my dad's dropping me off to school on his way to work.

There's no telling Jemma to garden without cash for the plants and other stuff, and she wouldn't have the flower-power thing even for a developmetal stage. You know, now we are our pre-rebel developmental stage, we're not even 14.

Bob says Jemma is a rebel already, with this grammar. She says she'll think what counts towards the rebel score when she is 14.

Now, those flower-power guys were anti-establishment-arian. They rejected the establishment, the people who believed there was no sense to go about matters without economy. We're pretty much like those people for economy, because we don't think we'd have even crayons without the dimes to buy them, and we do not know any altruist crayon-makers.

We're anti-dis-establishment-arian, some guys would say. We are opposed to anti-establishment-arian people.

But why say "anti-dis-establishment-arian", if you can say "establishmentarian"?

We can think about the fixes. Words can have affixes. Some are prefixes, and some are suffixes, or even infixes.

A prefix goes before the word. An infix goes in the word, and a suffix goes after the word. For example, we're pre-rebels, that is, before the age people usually begin questioning everything or most of the life's matters, unless they have done it before, as John on some lyrics he recently saw over the Internet.

The text went like the guy believed, in the end, there could have been one love for everyone to feel. John said it was incongruous. Though a pre-rebel only, he'd never condescend to emotional totalitarianism.

This    "anti-dis-establish-ment-arian"   thing has pre-fixes as well as suf-fixes. Some of those fixes waive one another.

Both   "anti-"   and   "dis-"   are fixes that deny. If you put them together, you're like saying, no-no-yes.

More, word build, we can call it morphology, deals also with speech parts. The word   "to establish"   is a verb. If we add   "-ment",   we get a noun. When we add   "-arian",   we make an adjective. Then, double-negating it makes, well, nonsense.

I think we're gonna stay our pre-rebels, without reference to establishing. I'll take it with my rebel score, to think about life and myself without fixing on other people. It's human nature to score.
