Etymology[edit]

Is there any evidence that this word was constructed in Latin? Best evidence places the creation of this word in the 19th century. DCDuring TALK 21:06, 21 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The first part is from Latin, the rest is an English suffix. The word was constructed in English. --Vahagn Petrosyan 19:25, 16 February 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

FWIW, I had been guessing that it came from "real" + "-ify". —DIV (49.180.194.255 13:46, 26 June 2022 (UTC))Reply[reply]
