  • $\begingroup$ I've got the same suffixes, except "up", for which I've got "bud". But what's the meta connection? $\endgroup$ – M Oehm Jul 1 '15 at 16:20
  • $\begingroup$ @MOehm You are more correct. $\endgroup$ – Engineer Toast Jul 1 '15 at 16:21
  • $\begingroup$ I can think of Bud-ding, bud-get, bud-dying, but mashbud and budmash don't make sense. It's probably a similar word. $\endgroup$ – Kingrames Jul 1 '15 at 16:48
  • $\begingroup$ @Kingrames budmash is a hindi inspired word $\endgroup$ – CodeNewbie Jul 1 '15 at 16:49
  • $\begingroup$ @EngineerToast: Is this what you intended? $\endgroup$ – CodeNewbie Jul 1 '15 at 16:52
