Re: Uneducational or non educational

Wouldn't that be diseducational instead?
Like, integrate/disintegrate, associate/disassociate (shortened to dissociate), respect/disrespect, etc.

unresponsive and nonresponsive don't seem to be different, both say "lack of response". Same with uneducated, lack of education. Yes, uneducated =/= uneducational, but still.

Diseducational yes.



With educate, you usually educate something/someone. You provide an education. Someone receives an education. The experience was educational. If you don't receive it you're uneducated but you haven't been through an experience of uneducation.

If someone starts to lose their mind they can become diseducated, their experience has been diseducational.


I'm not sure if for something that is of no educational value there should be the word uneducational. Fiction, fictional. Non-fiction. Non-fictional. uneducation isn't a thing so probably neither should uneducational be.
But then again, you have unconfrontational but you don't have unconfront
