Reply to: Re: Meaning of the Suvin by Menke
What I meant was: 'That's a made-up word', not 'you're telling lies'. You took the beginning of one word, and the end of another, and 'made up' a new word. I have not yet mastered every subtlety of the English language.
I'm sure everything you said was well-intended.
'Made-up words' are usually meant to amuse, not to deceive.

My appologies go out to all I have offended.
