Maddow’s “make your own verb suffix contest”

by , under Art, Brain Food, Media, Politics

I’m not sure I can even adequately paraphrase the point of this contest, so let me take advantage of their paraphrasing: “The short version is that an Amazonian tribe uses verb suffixes as a means of indicating the source of their information. Your challenge is to come up with verb suffixes for English to make it easier to know where a person is coming from with what they’re talking about (and whether they’re worth listening to).

Be sure to read the comments; they’re priceless.
