    Peaceless?

    On one of the quizzes the 'correct' answer said the word 'peace' could have both -ful or -less as a suffix. I've never heard of the word peaceless. Lol.

    You might not have heard of it but it's in all the dictionaries I've consulted.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Welcome to the forums, Lynn.

    Ems is right. Click here.

    Now change the headword to 'peaceful' for comparison.

    It's uncommon, but it exists.
