Last week I thought of a riddle and posted it here. It got way more attention than I expected, including a new wave of similar riddles of the general format:
My prefix __
My suffix __
My infix __
where the answer is a single word (or phrase) that satisfies each of the lines. The words "prefix", "suffix", and "infix" are also used loosely so that they are not necessarily word derivatives. Here's a list of all of them that I can find right now:
- Tired of my yet?
- I start with an animal and finish with a material
- Tag! You're it! :)
- The Worst Performing Riddle
- My front was revered in olden times
- An eight letter word this time, what am I?
- My prefix is called an island
- The Riley Channel
- In Excess of "IX"es
- Riley Riddle #359
- Another Riley riddle, not as good as I'd hoped
And in the last one listed, people are already discussing in the comments whether to call them "Riley riddles" or "Rileyddles."
And so my question:
Does this recent wave of riddles based on mine deserve its own tag, and if so, what should the tag be named?
Although I appreciate all the recognition, I don't think the tag should be
rileyddle :) Do you think a tag like
affix-riddle would be appropriate? The word "affix" is a general term that includes prefixes, suffixes, and infixes.
