A possibility is

A gramps sitting in a corner solving anagrams (~in-a-gramps); describing an elderly man, perhaps someone's grandfather, absorbed in rearranging letters to form words while sitting in a corner.

As mentioned in the question, some of the affixes are sound-alikes rather than exact strings.

I think it might be

INEQUALITIES

Reasoning

A TEASE sitting IN A corner solving INEQUALITIES.

where I've used homophones e in inequalities with a,
ties with tease.

Probably far-fetched:

ENIGMAS

A mouse sitting in a corner solving ENIGMAS (in-a-g-mouse)

My answer is

ACROSTIC(s)

Because

A TICK sitting CROSS A corner solving ACROSTIC(s).

I think it sounds better in the plural, but the sentence starts with "A," so I have to go with the singular.

I've just realized I've mixed up PREFIX and INFIX, but I'll leave the answer up anyway.
