    I think it should be "inhalable" and this is an example of a verbal adjective.
    Another one that's quite trendy and popular is the word "doable".

    they are similar to verbs in form and meaning. :D :P

    In France, "bankable" is pretty trendy in TV shows. Dropping English words here and there always has had some appeal to certain people ;)
