Do you take note when you see or hear people use the suffix “—wise”? I do.
“Taxwise, the consequences will be significant.”
“I have branched out contentwise in my latest book.”
“Weatherwise, I prefer autumn to any other season.”
Commonly accepted uses of “—wise” are “otherwise,” “clockwise” and “counterclockwise.” Otherwise (ahem), other uses, although common, are generally considered a rather awkward manner of expression. It’s easy to avoid the suffix. Just try to be specific:
“The taxes will be significant if you decide to leave all your money to your no-good nephew.”
“My latest book’s content is different from that of my previous books.”
“I prefer autumn weather to that of any other season.”
