    Affordness?

    That's not even a word.

    Hi!

    What about this:

    Affordedness. Is it a legitimate word or not?

    No, it is not.

    Why don't you check a dictionary? :D

    Hi!

    I've created an adjective "afforded" and added the suffix -"ness" thus making a noun. What's wrong with this?

    I believe it's wrong, still.

    Did you mean 'affordable' (adj) or 'affordability' (noun)?

    Hi!

    I'm not quite sure if it is legitimate to make such a word. For sure, it is a neologism but I wonder whether one is allowed to form something like that. And if, I think it would be close to the 'affordability'.
