82. That's called a "question" in English.
See that little squiggle at the end of the sentence? That's what we call a "question mark."
(Oh, no! There goes another one! You'd best google* it quickly before it gets away!)

Look, if you can't be bothered to crack open a dictionary long enough to understand how compounding, affixation, and other forms of linguistic derivation are employed in the creation of portmanteau words and other neologisms, don't ride 'round here on your high horse and expect to be taken seriously in your critique of my diction.


* = AKA for the incredibly fusty: "input the given character string into a world-wide-web search engine in a web browser on your personal computer, and then press the Enter key to obtain a list of associated results."
