This post is in response to something I read on this site. I wanted to ask about the coining of words in the evolution of language. Before I ask, I want you guys to read want prompted me to write this. While it is technically correct that ic in alcoholic is what transforms the word to describe someone addicted to alcohol, why is it wrong of a language to evolve to use holic as a suffix to describe someone that's addicted to the word it's attached to? After all, isn't workaholic a word that is in found in the dictionary? I'm asking this because I'm assuming that the English language has changed and evolved over the years, hence there are standard rules and usages of the language now that weren't standard in the past. I don't know the history of the English language, so I may be wrong. However, I love this site and learn a lot from it, so I'm asking you guys your opinion on the matter. What do you guys think?
