This is something that confuses me ... isn't scientific redundant? Maybe there's a fine difference between adjectives that end in ic
and those that end in ical
but I have yet to find the difference.
There are some words where I wonder if they were ever uneccessarily al'ed. Hysterical? Was that ever succinctly: He was hysteric?
Thanks to the person who softlinked suffix abuse. That's exactly what I'm wondering about.
