camelvirtues commented on the word underzealous
Under- has been the lonely affix for too long concerning "zealous," or should I say, Zeal. Because English tongues have embraced -under's popular cousin prefix, we are to assume that the inverse instance is not as applicable, and to this assumption's most draconian degree, that we should have never conceived of the word in the first place? Let us be in tow of our customary grammatics, that there stand invariably the definitive poles
by which we credit our environment's intelligibility. This word justly belongs to any dictionary because its concept is manifested repeatedly. How many times have I, too, been underzealous!
