I (me, not the letter) love language. How in+credible it is that we can take pieces of sounds and symbols, add them together to make more sounds and symbols. How in+genious of us to create a multitude of meanings and uses, forms and functions, out of air and vibration of our vocal cords. Whoa.
Nothing wrong with having fun with the in prefix, eh? Some other favorites:
incommunicable (so much of art comes out of our need to communicate the incommunicable)
incomplete (I have too many projects like this)
insinuate (ah, the subtleties of language)
instability (= life)
inextinguishable (true love, and yes, I believe it exists)
Do you ever have fun with language? What are some favorite words, morphemes, sentences?

N. has already devoured the candy, but I'll fill it up again for Easter....
