You are:

Many languages spoken in my prefix

EU - the European Union, which has 24 official languages.

Many stars found in my suffix

LA - Los Angeles, home to Hollywood (solved by @greysaff)

Many clauses written in my whole

My word, there really are - to the point that most people don't bother reading the whole thing before ticking the 'I Accept' box!

novella ?

I think it is:

unlikely

Many languages spoken in my prefix:

un -> United Nations

Many stars found in my suffix:

ly -> light-year

Many clauses written in my whole:

unlikely, common adj./adv. used in clauses (a bit not sure...)

Enhanced Answer:
Based on the comment under GreySaff's answer, might be:

formula

Many languages spoken in my prefix:

for -> preposition in many languages

Many stars found in my suffix:

la -> L.A. Hollywood

Many clauses written in my whole:

formula -> logic true/false clause like A->B, A v B

  • $\begingroup$ @Luke May I ask that the prefix and suffix are correct or not in my answer? :P (I just knew that the whole part is bit far-fetched...) $\endgroup$ – Conifers Sep 10 at 8:46
