    I can't seem to find the answer. Some say it is a colloquialism, others say it is an infix, as opposed to a suffix or prefix; i.e it's a word that inserts into another (a whole 'nother?) word. If this is so then I think words such as abso-fcuking-lutely should have their place in the english language.

    The one that bugs me the most is "his" instead of "he's". I'd never seen that one until I joined bubhub

    A question for all the wordsmiths on the hub!

    Should the saying be...

    "A new lease ON life",

    or

    "A new lease OF life?"
