Ful & Less

Os suffixos FUL e LESS geralmente são acrescentados a substantivos, formando assim adjectivos.

E podemos dizer que,na maioria das vezes, são opostos. Enquanto FUL (um L só) dá a idéia de cheio, tendo “muito” LESS dá a idéia de sem, não tendo.
Mas isso não quer dizer que vocês possam sair colocando FUL e LESS em todo substantivo, criando contrários.

➡ Vale lembrar que o contrário de BEAUTIFUL não é BEAUTILESS!
