@hippietrail but you didn't get 5 upvotes for your "Yes" in this question, but for the good examples. The question is quite rhetoric, it cannot be the aim to formulate questions in a way that they fit SE Standard, but then anyway generate lists? Bad plea and a bit fussy. So should I flag my question as CW?. I also don't see the point of rash closing of questions, not waiting for more down/up-votes or min. 5 close votes, esp. in BETA, when the scope is defined. That's not a very productive atmosphere prevailing upon other user to comment/vote/ask questions, concerning your meta question...

@Flimzy isn't your question spanish.stackexchange.com/questions/324/… a even more open-ended list question than this one? If you can explain I dont see a need to make a extra meta question, because I still think my question is very on-topic as the GLU community already proved. You are asking for "any words", how can you accept a answer here?

thanks @hippietrail some of these I already find out using german and english suffixes and translation services, but of course I would be especially interested in the ones I cannot derive that way as I don't have the holistic knowledge of vocabulary as a native speaker. I read that there are many suffixes in Spanish, so I'm highly interested in these patterns. In German and English there don't seem to exist more than 3-4 of such suffixes.

@Flimzy they are not accepted as correct, but fitting best the need of the single questioner, correct is mostly the highest upvoted answer. Personally, I always read at least 2-3 answers, as the questioner may have a different knowledge background and accepts a answer I would not even voted. I don't think the accepted feature is at all a criterion to rule out questions. It's more a sorting feature for unanswered/poorly answered questions. Following your reasoning people come to SE to read only the accepted answers and only vote the most correct answer, but not several in a question?
