“Diminishment”


(July 11, 2019)

may drape old ‘minish’

with both ‘ixes’ – pre- and suff- –

and wear word as new*

*(Archaic “minish” from Old – or is that Middle?, I ‘five’get – English is dressed with modern party-goers’ pantaloons, often saying much the same as the old saw sans suffix (or, yes, even prefix) as granpaw might devise. But add the prefix and you just know a new suffix like ‘ment’ would sweeten the pie with sparkled appeal. Thanks evermuchso Oxford American English Dictionary – OAED!)
