Over-suffixification

Prudence happened to catch an interview with an academic, who said some interesting things about the nature of community and sustainability and such.

It was all very interesting.

Until the academic used the word co-operativity.

This being one of Prudence's pet hates - the making up of new words when there's a perfectly serviceable old word.

Whatever happened to co-operation?

Harrumph.
