I am firmly convinced that -ish is the greatest word in the english language. While technically not a word, it is useful in pointing out the grayness of it all. Some languages, like spanish, seem to be severely lacking in the -ish factor. The makes these languages severe and definite. -ish has saved me from awkward situations many times by making the situation not awkward, but awkwardish. See? It works! I'm not a genius, but I'm genius-ish.
