    What Are All The Words End With "taneous"??

    Hi , teachers:

    I know three words that end with postfix "taneous":
    spontaneous, spontaneity,
    simultaneous, simultaneity

    But I also remember another one ends with "taneous" and with the meaning similar to "improvise". Am I mistaken??

    What are all the words end with "taneous"?? Anyone can tell?? Thanks:)

    I imagine the word you have in mind is 'extemporaneous'; no t.

    For '-taneous' words, use Onelook: Words that match the pattern "*taneous" - OneLook Dictionary Search
