comment Why does “pre-” change the meaning of “dominantly” to mean “for the most part; mainly”?
It makes your question moot -- if "pre" is not a prefix in this case, then asking how "pre" changes "dominantly" is an unanswerable question. Kind of like how you can't figure out what the "pre" is doing in "preemption" because "emption" isn't a word in English -- "preemtion" came as a whole word from Latin and trying to break it into parts just doesn't work.

comment Which is correct: “troubleshooted” or “troubleshot”?
@Eduardo I'm not sure to what elephant you refer, but perhaps it needs to be shooted/shot.
