    nonforrous or forrousless

    Why can't we say ferrousless instead of non-ferrous? Is there any rule?

    'Ferrousless' isn't a word.
    We also say "It has non-plastic components" rather than 'plasticless'.
    There are many examples.

    Really sorry. I know. I'll try to be more careful.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Sadly, Yoda wasn't immortal, just really old.
