The Oxford Dictionary of New Words lists aliterate ("can read, but prefers not to" ), which is distinct from illiterate ("can't read").
I didn't even know the word aliterate
existed... hehehe but I know many who fit that category
as for "atypical", isn't "typical" descended from the greek tupos? in that case, the a- would be perfectly normal.
Yes, I think it's from tupos, too. But there's no entry for atupos in my Greek dictionary
, whereas there is one atheos for example. I suppose the a- is perfectly normal here though, cause it's of Greek origin
My dictionary says: not, without.
L from Gr, used chiefly with words of L or Gr origin.
That's what i was wondering about most... if you could only use it with Greek or with Latin words too.
