    -ology, a suffix meaning, a field of study or academic discipline.

    *hypothetical words based on my native intuition

    acculturation => *ac-cul-tur-a-tology
    literature => *li-ter-a-tology
    culture => *cul-tur-ology

    :D

    No. Not correct in the sense that they are actual English words. They're not. They're made up. I made them up using the suffix -ology. :D
