    Default Warmonger

    If you had to break down the word 'warmonger' into its component parts: the root and any affixes, how would you do it?

    This is giving me a real headache - I go from thinking that it is just a root (as you can have anti-warmonger-ing) to -monger being the suffix, or war- as a prefix, but I don't think these are correct. Any help would be gratefully received!

    We have ironmongers, fishmongers and warmongers- it depends what they are 'mongering'.
