comment What do you call words that look like a negation but are not?
@LePressentiment, I've seen many threads with -1 votes... so it couldn't be automatically deleted just because of that. Btw, I couldn't even see the link.. how to request for its undeletion?

@Alenanno, Why is the "de" in "dejected" considered negation and not simply part of the word itself? For example, the "de" in "decimeter", "deadline", "decrement", "deployer", "dejeuner", "devolving", "deserting", "demonical" are not considered to be negations.

@vonjd, "turnkey" is the wrong term. Full fledged products can be both turnkey and non-turnkeys, they are not related in any way.
