To me, "etabnannery" looks more English than "etabnannity." Words ending in L fit better with -ity, in N with -ery -- at least to my eyes, but this is extremely subjective. An adjective form might be nice though -- etabnannerious? etabnannious? Something to parallel "maggelitinous"... Off on a bit of word-association: "Etabnannery" makes me think of the word "shennanigans" (or however it's spelled). Must be the "nan" in there. I also think of crazy nuns running around. In a complex but predictable pattern, of course. ;) -- AA
