comment Pronunciation of “Short-lived”
@toryan: life becomes "lived" in "short-lived", just as leaf becomes "leaved" in "green-leaved".

comment Pronunciation of “Short-lived”
I apologize. I thought it was clear that if one says "short-lived" instead of "shortly-lived," one must use the long i, as "lived" in that instance is directly coming from "life."
