Is there an antonym "pointfull"?

No. Possible antonyms (depending on meaning) are beneficial, meaningful, pointed, profitable, sensible

Perhaps as a kind of protologism [1]. — Vildricianus 16:44, 11 April 2006 (UTC)


Some dictionaries distinguish the senses (a) without meaning, senseless, and (b) without purpose, purposeless. Some use "ineffectual" instead of "purposeless". My understanding of the distinction between the two:

  • purposeless := no purpose can be identified
  • ineffectual := the purpose in view cannot be achieved by the chosen method
