Most dictionaries don't have "healthless," but I'd like to use it. What sounds better? 1- Poor Sasha, loveless and health-less. (Standard.) 2- Poor Sasha, loveless and healthless. (Use it anyway.) 3- Poor Sasha, loveless and healthless (Italicize only the "less.") In here, for example, I'd like to use "mis" in italics, instead of just write "behavior." I've seen that strategy before, but I'd like to know your thoughts. (taking about letting your wait for hours) ...a common misbehavior at the medical center. Register to remove this ad Thanks.
