After blending, taking the first two letters from the word smoke and the last two letters from fog, we get "smog".
My questions are:
1. Is there any word in English that is a result of blending the last two or three letters, etc, of words?
2. Is there any word in English that is a result of blending the first two or three letters, etc, of words?
Below is a made up example to make my point clear.
cassreco or etterder
3. Can blending happen of more than two words?
4. Smog is a result of smoke and fog, but is it possible to find the opposite, I mean taking the last letters of the second word and put is them first and the fist letters of the second word and put them last?
This is a most interesting question, Izzy, and I have been thinking about it since you posted it.
I think that the only formation that we have in English has the first part the first part of one of the nouns and the second or last part of a second noun. I have looked for examples of another way in several texts.
