Sometime ago, there was a thread on this list, where {meH}ed nouns
were discussed. It wasn't said that there is a *rule*, which prohibits
the use of verb prefixes on {meH}ed nouns, but it was said that it
would be better not to use them, since they could become confusing.
Unfortunately, i can't locate that thread now.

What are "extemporaneous constructions" ?
