Example sentences using "Suffix"

Q: Please show me example sentences with suffix - ville

.
A: -ville is a somewhat common place name ending in North America e.g. Charlottesville, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Drummondville. We don't have it in the UK as much with places because of how the various parts of the UK has been conquered & renamed over its history, but it's still recognisable as a place name ending, and so sometimes it can be used to make a joke about a town/city that is populated by people of a certain quality, or that has a certain quality itself.

For example, you might jokingly say something like "Idiotville, population: me" if you say/do something stupid, which is saying that you live in a town called Idiotville, where everyone is an idiot.
It's not really the -ville part that is funny, but more the concept of hypothetical towns/cities that are named because of a certain quality of the town/its inhabitants, and making jokes around the idea. Hope that helps!
