Ay-ya, how time flies, 6 months ago I encountered Amaretto - Through The Night, one "EuroDisco" supertrack that continues to position/shift me in the zone, love it. The authors beautifully and accurately described it as being COSMIC, rightfully so - this transition got me thinking how the mainstream English lacks nouns mapped onto this feeling of cosmicity, we have this cosmos-immersing track and no enough wording, nah...

While searching for English counterpart(s) [cosmicness/cosmicity] of 'космичност' found several gaps in the suffix roster:

Once again, Google Books proves most instrumental:

The OED comes to offer more ... precedents, as:

Current roster houses 'dragonorama', but lacks the beautiful 'dragonoramic', also the additional adjective '-al' and adverb '-ally':

dragonoramic leprechaunoramic
dragonoramical leprechaunoramical
dragonoramically leprechaunoramically

dragonothetic leprechaunothetic
dragonothetical leprechaunothetical
dragonothetically leprechaunothetically

Heh-heh, plagiarizing Sir W. Hamilton, this thread has been started by a Dragonothetic Idealists, the dragons are out there regardless of our beliefs.

Also, 'genesis' variants are cool:

dragonogeny leprechaunogeny
dragonogony leprechaunogony

dragonognosis leprechaunognosis
dragonogyral leprechaunogyral

Several days ago a colleague of mine raised the question of obtaining some (pseudo) level/certificate of commandment of English language.
To me, these "papers" are two-way fake since they bring false sense of assessing/understanding, bothways - in the owner and the requirer.
No matter how high the level is, the classical exercise of writing down a sentence containing a given word remains, for those who think they are in the know, try share with us a sentence with the word 'archonizator' :P

In order to illustrate to him my point, I showed the pagoda structure for the 'exascale' word and explained how this approach solves above exercise in its totality. THE DRAGON APPROACH, to put it poetically. So, the commandment of English language is illusory without the help of superheavy collocation corpus - tens of millions of collocations strong - for each single word, its "environment" in the language is what actually constitutes the dictionaries and their examples.

Another two nifty forgotten words resurfaced (in OED) after looking for a word meaning "an agent turning something into arctic style", the root word being 'Arctica'.
Following the pattern:
Arctica Arcticanize Arcticanizator
Africa Africanize Africanizator
America Americanize Americanizator


The instigator for this 'Arcticanizator' was my search for a mobo (motherboard) for my new desktop rig dedicated to compressioncraft, in compression community the actual process of compressing is often called 'freezing', thus the newly coined word suggests a machine doing compression, as a primary function.



Benchmarking some heavy English corpus on a random/nameless machine won't do - a personified machine is needed, my testmachines always have a personal name. For instance, sharing how 'Arcticanizator' crunches my latest corpus Delphi_Classics_Complete_Works_of_128_authors.tar (1,576,788,480 bytes) adds ... unrandomness/personification. In fact, this very precious corpus will serve as a guinea pig for all my search/compression/logogramming endeavors. Its vocabulary (monograms/digrams/trigrams/tetragrams/pentagrams/hexagrams/heptagrams/octagrams/nonagrams) will be shared. To get the feel how strong it is, here come the covers of all 128 complete works in form of a PILLAR:

Looking up TFD for words ending in 'tizator', there is one only hit - 'grammatizator':



https://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/The+Great+Automatic+Grammatizator

Where are all those nouns?! 'Phonetize' has its derivative - 'Phonetizator' - a must-have it is.

Looking up OED, there were only few '-tizator' words, among them:

archonizator

† ˈmowyer1 Obs.

Also 5 mugher, muwyer.

[f. mow v.2: see -ier.]

One who puts hay in mows.

   14‥ Voc. in Wr.-Wülcker 565/18 Archonistus, a mowyer.    Ibid. 577/2 Cumularius, a muwyer.    1483 Cath. Angl. 245/2 A Mugher of hay, archonizator.

anathematizator

† ˈwarier Obs.

Also 4 -ere, 5 -ar, waryare, 6 weriour.

[f. wary v. + -er1.]

One who curses.

   1382 Wyclif Ps. xxi. 17 The counseil of warieris [Vulg. concilium malignantium] besegide me.    ― 1 Cor. v. 11 A‥cursere [gloss] or wariere [Vulg. maledicus].    c 1410 Lantern of Light 131 War[i]ars, cursars, schidars, sclaundirars & blasfemars.    c 1440 Promp. Parv. 516/2 Waryare, or bannare, imprecator, -trix, {anathematizator}, maledicus.    1513 Douglas Æneis, etc. (1874) IV. 226 That, ȝou to pleys, I set all schame behind, Offeryng me to my weriouris wilfully.


And the new addition to the suffix roster - 'dragonicity', there is a Chinese company called 'Dragonicity Limited' - Information Technology and Services.

I'm reasonably certain that when you check your working corpus you will find very few examples of "Arcticanizator" because the adjectival form is "Arctic", not "Arctican", and the suffixes -ize and -ate are almost synonymous and redundant.

I'd be curious, though, what you find for "Arctize", "Arctizer", "Arcticate", and "Arcticator" !

Once more leonAzul your remarks got me thinking, will check them, instantly 'Vatican' came to mind as another questionable case, what is its adjective, hm!
"... The name is taken from Vatican Hill, the geographic location of the state. "Vatican" is derived from the name of an Etruscan settlement, Vatica or Vaticum meaning garden, located in the general area the Romans called vaticanus ager, "Vatican territory"." /Wikipedia/
This 'Vatica' is a sister word to 'Arctica', soundwise.

It is time to enrich the suffix roster with a must-have addition to the diminutives!

Today (while watching the sitcom 'Man with a plan' Season 1 Episode 6, the wife of Matt LeBlanc said "fake-a-rooney" while confessing a little fakery done on her part) encountered superb suffixes which I cannot believe I did forgo, namely:

Suffix
(informal) Added to certain nouns to form familiar diminutives, normally with jocular or light-hearted intent.
-eroo
-aroo
-eroonie
-aroonie

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/-eroo#English

Thus,
dragon-eroo leprechaun-eroo
dragon-aroo leprechaun-aroo
dragon-eroonie leprechaun-eroonie
dragon-aroonie leprechaun-aroonie

In the past I used for a search function the name 'shockeroo', forgetting such gems is stupid, that's why keeping a log file as the Dragon Suffix Roster revision 4 PDF booklet proves handy. When have more time will share here revision 5 of the PDF, updated with previous posts new gems...

>Is it possible to be completely up-to-date with one's Vaticanizations?

It is not, obviously the continuous coverage of these dirty activities is on-going and endless. Those dirtybags even helped a sensual, intelligent and tormented woman in rejecting Christianity. Having watched more than 3 hours of Sinéad O'Connor interviews, her notion about Vaticanization is clearly overlapping with the Urban Dictionary definition:

TOP DEFINITION
Vaticanize
To conspire or conceal the sexuality of a person or group, in order to insulate a business or organization, from fault or liability due to their actions.
Some traditonally black churches vaticanize homosexuality among their clergy.
#vaticanizing #vaticanization #hide #conceal #conspire #cloak #shroud #secret
by Bogus1 October 03, 2010


Hm, my "far-out" coinage 'Arcticanize' seems no longer such taking into account the 'Vaticanize' counterpart:

Plan to "Vaticanize" Old City

Foreign Minister Peres has a program for the Vaticanization of the Old City. In other words, that it would be under the patronage of the Pope, but managed by the Palestinians.


https://www.prismnet.com/~jewishwb/iris/archives/199.php

>I'd be curious, though, what you find for "Arctize", "Arctizer", "Arcticate", and "Arcticator" !

Same here, so I checked Schizandrafield Corpus revision C for *_arcti* pattern and wildcard case-insensitive search:

Only "arctize" gave results, only two:

[*_arcti*] RDD_0,000,021_arctize /Schizandrafield_Corpus_revision_C_(44-corpora_788068084_distinct-words).sorted/
[*_arcti*] STX_0,000,002_arctize /Schizandrafield_Corpus_revision_C_(44-corpora_788068084_distinct-words).sorted/


Below two corpora not being the first to turn on:
RDD, Reddit_Comments_(JSON_objects)_from_(2005-12_to_2018-01).json
STX, archive.org_stackexchange_(346_corpora_2017-Oct-12).tar

Next, I checked Wiktionary:
"Arctize" gave no results, your adjective 'Arctic' was found verbalized, though.
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/arcticize

https://encyclopedia.tfd.com/Arctica
In Bulgarian we have "Артика" to denote the most northern continent, "АрКтика" is less common despite being the right one. That's why I listed 'Arctica' as a continent to borrow the forms of America/Africa and later of Vatica and Jamaica and Serdica (me being a Serdican :P, or the more ringy/ringing 'Serdicar', following the Dune's Imperial soldier-fanatics):
https://www.thefreedictionary.com/Serdica
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sardaukar

Hee-hee, looking at the sentence above with Vaticanization, one beauty instantly popped-up - 'Satanization' or as the Revelation allures 'Dragonization'.
By the way, leonAzul, recently while listening to an YouTube podcast about Assyria/Babylonia in fact Akkadia, the narrator waked me up by dot-connecting the biblical term "THE WATCHERS" and "DRAGONS", remember the first post? The etymology of 'dragon' being derkesthai "to see clearly," from PIE *derk- "to see."

Indeed, my fascination with morphology ANIMATED ME bigtime thus led to refinement of my precious toy Nakamichi 'Dragoneye', its C source is a worthy practical resource how to index-n-search into multi-gigabytes strong English texts:



My intent is to buy a mainstream/cheap SSD as the latest Samsung 1TB QVO and rip the complete works of aforeposted 128 English classical authors... thus allowing to dragonize (see clearly) the 1.5GB of text...

Last thing first, glad to share the latest 'Dragon Suffix Roster':

While listening to a "Ben Askren and Chael Sonnen judge the best trash talk in combat sports history" video I heard Chael using 'authenticness' instead of my first choice 'authenticity', so it got me thinking and seeing more gaps in the Dragon Suffix Roster...

-ical-ness
was covered but not the
-ic-ness
as in the 'authenticness':
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/authenticness

Lo, double-checking for faroutness, it turns out the second form is needed:

Etymology
authentical + -ness
Noun
authenticalness (uncountable)
1. The quality of being authentic; authenticity.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/authenticalness

Thus the add-on:

| -ICNESS | DRAGONICNESS | LEPRECHAUNICNESS |

Another gap:

The adjective -ly (after the man-ly) misses its "entourage":

-LY / DRAGONLY / LEPRECHAUNLY

manliness
Noun
manliness (usually uncountable, plural manlinesses)
1. The quality of being manly; the set of qualities, traits and abilities considered appropriate to men (as opposed to women or children); similarity to a man.
2. (euphemistic, rare) Male genitals.
Synonyms
(the quality of being manly): manfulness, mannishness, maleness

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/manliness#English

Always the -ful has to be complemented with -less, so:

manless + -ness
Noun
manlessness (uncountable)
1. Lack of a man.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/manlessness

Thus the add-ons:

| -liness | DRAGONliness | LEPRECHAUNliness |
| -linesses | DRAGONlinesses | LEPRECHAUNlinesses |
| -fulness | DRAGONfulness | LEPRECHAUNfulness |
| -lessness | DRAGONlessness | LEPRECHAUNlessness |

The 'dracon' alternative was not covered:

draconianly
draconian + -ly
Adverb
draconianly (comparative more draconianly, superlative most draconianly)
1. In a draconian manner.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/draconianly

Thus the add-on:

| -ianly | DRAGONianly | LEPRECHAUNianly |

Also, after the 'Americannesses' I saw the '-nesses' missing:

Alternative forms
Americaness
Etymology
American + -ness
Noun
Americanness (usually uncountable, plural Americannesses)
1. The quality or characteristic of being American.
Synonyms
Americanity

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Americanness

Thus,

| -NESSes | DRAGONNESSes | LEPRECHAUNNESSes |

The hidden gem above 'Americanity' returns me instantly to aforementioned 'authenticity' which in turn back to the "Americanicity", three beauties, indeed.

"... suggests that Hemingway functioned as a signifier of "Italianicity" upon his return to Oak Park after World War I, while he signified "Americanicity" back in Italy."

To me, one day, this roster will serve as the backbone (suffix suggestion list) for morphological/suffixal wildcard searches.

Hm, a new suffix popped up already after seeing 'ironsmith', it is unacceptable not to have a word for a dragon maker, how do you call an artist e.g. forging dragon toys/figurines? Of course the metalwork is a subset of craftsmanship, the material could be porcelain, textile and whatever the artist sees fit.

Etymology 1
From Middle English smyth, smith, from Old English smiþ (“handicraftsman, smith, blacksmith, armorer, carpenter, worker in metals or in wood”), from Proto-Germanic *smiþaz (“arranger, smith”), from Proto-Indo-European *smēy-, *smī- (“to cut, hew”). Cognate with Dutch smid, German Schmied, Swedish/Norwegian smed.

1. A craftsperson who works metal into desired forms using a hammer and other tools, sometimes heating the metal to make it more workable, especially a blacksmith.
2. (by extension) One who makes anything.
3. (archaic) An artist.

Etymology 2
From Middle English smythen (“To work metal, forge, beat into, torment, refine (of God - to refine his chosen); create, to work as a blacksmith”), from Old English smiþian (“to forge, fabricate”), from Proto-Germanic *smiþōną. Compare Dutch smeden, German schmieden.

A fully articulated iron dragon will be the highlight of the Bonhams Fine Japanese Art sale taking place on November 11 at New Bond Street. The 133cm long creature is estimated at £120,000 – 130,000.



This dragon is a stunning example of jizai okimono, naturalistic, fully articulated iron animal figures, whose bodies and limbs can be moved replicating their counterparts in real life. The dragon offered by Bonhams has a long serpentine and undulating body, forged with numerous scales that have been joined inside the body. The head, mouth, claws and ears are each constructed of moving parts and the leg joints can turn 180 degrees. Although little is known about the origin and development of jizai okimono as works of art, this dragon was created in the Edo Period (18th/19th century) by the Myochin School. Historically, members of the Myochin Family were supreme armour makers and famous for their excellent iron forging and hammer work. However, during the protracted long peaceful Edo period there was less demand for the manufacture of armour and the family used their craftsmanship and expertise to create other objects, including jizai okimono. There are only three of such dragons known to exist that are similar in size and workmanship.

Very nice piece of work. I did a little of the basics of smithying and forging at school fifty years ago. Not an easy craft to master!

Have you thought of branching out into "draco__" words?

>Very nice piece of work. I did a little of the basics of smithying and forging at school fifty years ago. Not an easy craft to master!

Yes, I tried metalcarving and failed epically.

Verb
smithy (third-person singular simple present smithies, present participle smithying, simple past and past participle smithied)
1. (uncommon) to forge, especially by hand
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/smithy#English

Above wording of yours helped me to stop hesitating and add the verbal forms of 'smith' as 'weaponsmithing' along with your "uncommon" 'weaponsmithying', thus:

-smithing dragonsmithing leprechaunsmithing
-smithying dragonsmithying leprechaunsmithying

By the way, why can't I find 'metalcarving' in Wiktionary but the 'stonecarving' is found in TFD:

References in periodicals archive:

>Have you thought of branching out into "draco__" words?

Have not, it scares me a bit, similarly to 'dragonfly' as JJ once suggested. I always considered Greek originals (as 'drakos/drakon') to be the first choice, somehow I deviate from this "rule".

My wish is to exhaust the suffixes no matter whether they form obsolete/rare/archaic/uncommon words, sometimes such a word "transfers" i.e. conveys all the spirit behind the notion - it makes the reader/receiver feel the topic better.

Two things, one bugfix and one add-on:

- Hearing "moving westward" in a Clovis documentary got me thinking, why don't we have 'dragonward', instead of saying "the Knight took the road leading to the dragon" I would use "the Knight took the dragonward road".

Suffix
-ward
Forming adverbs denoting course or direction to, or motion or tendency toward, as in "backward", "toward", "forward", etc.
Forming adjectives, as in "a backward look", "the northward road", etc; used even by speakers who usually use -wards for adverbs.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/-ward#English
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/-wards

- The nasty bug in r.5 is the:
| -MENT | DRAGONMENT | LEPRECHAUNMENT |

Suffix
-ment
Used to form nouns from verbs, the nouns having the sense of "the action or result of what is denoted by the verb".

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/-ment


Thus, the fix for r.6 is removing the above one and applying the -ment to the all verbs below:

| -IFY-MENT | DRAGONIFY-MENT | LEPRECHAUNIFY-MENT |
| -cholize-MENT | DRAGONcholize-MENT | LEPRECHAUNcholize-MENT |
| -ICALIZE-MENT | DRAGONICALIZE-MENT | LEPRECHAUNICALIZE-MENT |
| -ICIZE-MENT | DRAGONICIZE-MENT | LEPRECHAUNICIZE-MENT |
| -IZE-MENT | DRAGONIZE-MENT | LEPRECHAUNIZE-MENT |

Not forgetting the plurals:

| -IFY-MENTs | DRAGONIFY-MENTs | LEPRECHAUNIFY-MENTs |
| -cholize-MENTs | DRAGONcholize-MENTs | LEPRECHAUNcholize-MENTs |
| -ICALIZE-MENTs | DRAGONICALIZE-MENTs | LEPRECHAUNICALIZE-MENTs |
| -ICIZE-MENTs | DRAGONICIZE-MENTs | LEPRECHAUNICIZE-MENTs |
| -IZE-MENTs | DRAGONIZE-MENTs | LEPRECHAUNIZE-MENTs |

And the instrumental two ones:

| -ward | DRAGONward | LEPRECHAUNward |
| -wards | DRAGONwards | LEPRECHAUNwards |

Strange, beauties as 'moonward' are underused:

"The Master took a timeless moonward look and afterwards committed seppuku."

By the way, in Japan there were such an event, forgot the name, the nobleman was a lord and his mentor was a prominent Soohei (Warrior Monk). The story was deeper, he contemplated the reflection of the Moon on the nearby lake, or something like that.

Another instance:

皇居 (Imperial Palace) Kookyo

"... Saigoo Takamori slowly sat up, looked in the direction of the Imperial Palace, solemnly gripped his dagger ..."

Source: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/archaeology-and-history/magazine/2017/09-10/saigo-takamori-the-last-samurai/

"... he slowly sat up, looked kookyoward, solemnly gripped his dagger ..."

While watching Star Trek Discovery s02e03 heard the Spock's mother (being an empath) sayng 'psychopathy', instantly felt the gap in revision 5, so here comes r.6:

Etymology
From psycho- + -pathy.
Noun
psychopathy (countable and uncountable, plural psychopathies)
A personality disorder indicated by a pattern of lying, exploitation, heedlessness, arrogance, sexual promiscuity, low self-control, and lack of empathy and remorse. Violent and criminal offenses may be indicative of this disorder.
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/psychopathy

Noun
psychopathic (plural psychopathics)
(dated) A psychopath.
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/psychopathic#English

Noun
psychopathist (plural psychopathists)
(medicine, dated) One who studies mental illness.
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/psychopathist

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/psychopathically

So the new suffixes are:
-pathy
-pathies
-pathic
-pathics
-path
-paths
-pathist
-pathists
-pathically

Thus, after 'demon' the 'dragon' counterpart comes...

Etymology
demon + -o- + -pathy
Noun
demonopathy (uncountable)
demonomania (delusion of possession by devils)
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/demonopathy#English




Suffixes_revision6.txt:

Dragon_thread_revision_6+Latin__3-pages_.pdf:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZBxwfFdnHq0htUT-NpAMLRreSGnys9CP/view?usp=sharing

In revision 7, I intend to add columns (for comparisonal purposes) containing 'archon|demon|satan|hooligan' and the "experimental" 'porn|paragon' - I think having 8 words on a single line would allow to rule in, or, to rule out :P
