  • Ok it seems I always misuse backformation - is there no equivalent for this (awful, awful) trend of changing verbs into adjectives?? (*sucks at grammar, not entirely sure that's what she means to say*)

  • I've been seeing this particular abomination a lot lately on real estate listings. Similar to the pathetic ignorance and backformation that brought us ice coffee and ice tea.
