-dar[edit]

Is this used anywhere else but in gaydar?--Keene 10:58, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Don't think of any. Besides gaydar isn't gay + -dar, it is a blend of gay and radar. There isn't any productive suffix here. Robert Ullmann 12:10, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
This is quite interesting. Robert Ullmann 12:21, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
Pretty interesting. I remember some utterances of this now. --Keene 15:27, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
see also this list of nonces collected by Wordlustitude. It's not a big neologism producer, but it's certainly used for jocular nonces (as the context label makes clear). Circeus 01:30, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
