In the Etymology, there has been added some good information regarding the Català suffix -ic, which is used similarly to -esque. Is this the right place for this info? Leasnam 16:47, 26 October 2010 (UTC)



From Lansing +‎ -esque, after the cultural identity surrounding the Greater Lansing area of Michigan.


  • IPA(key): /lænʦiŋ'ɛsk/ obsolete or nonstandard characters (ʦ), invalid IPA characters (ʦ'), replace ʦ with t͡s, ' with ˈ


-esque (comparative more -esque, superlative most -esque)

  1. (slang) Marked as a stereotypical resident of Central Michigan.
  2. (slang) Marked as a stereotypical resident of Central Michigan due one having a mullet haircut as the identifying feature.

Should this have its own word entry, or would it be more appropriate to just place it on the page for "-esque" words? Mdkarazim 16:22, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Sounds like an invention that won't meet WT:CFI. You could use WT:LOP. Equinox 16:24, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
I put it on WT:LOP as recommended. Mdkarazim (talk) 17:19, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
