I want to use the word flexibility in an "ism" form. I have two possible forms in mind but sure which one is better:

  1. flexibilism
  2. flexibiltyism

Which of the above forms is correct?

Thank you!

  • What sense do you intend to convey through this combination?

  • The underlying question for acceptance of neologisms - if this were one - though linguistically inclined, is still dependent on cultural constraints.

In The Transition to Flexibility by Daniel C. Knudsen, Knudsen calls it flexibilism.

Knudsen states the following:

"The terms "flexibilism" and "flexible accumulation" refer to flexible production along with its emerging social and political institutions" (pg. 2).

  • Thank you so much ! Flexibilism . I take it.
