Assunto:  Do you use all these misses???
 
Mensagem: 

  Hi Deivis.

  You have a point, but you must use them (e.g. afixes and prefixes) when you have a good grasp of them, the meaning and shades of meanings etc...

   Sometimes words taken from a context and used in another one can lead to the confusion (the reader get confused, but you take the blame.) 

    Thus, if you aren´t answering a ''word power'' (from Reader´s Digest) or testing yourself in a spelling bee it´s better weigh your options, your word choice.

     What I mean is, the academical language (essentially written) is rather different from the spoken (and informal one).

       You have to consider the audience you are adressing, the level of your listener (and reader), if it´s music lingo,  poetry etc.

      

 

      It´s like this guy say, not about  afixes and prefixes but the use out-of-place-words

; take a look, please:

 "When these words are used unnecessarily, they cause comprehension problems for readers and often seem pompous. We think, "What a pompous wind-bag this writer is!"
