** Homeric ma-infixation is an interesting application of {{Hyperafffixation}} in that the particle "-ma-" is an infix (it is put in the middle of a word), producing words like saxomaphone and babamabushka. Homer, as you can guess, uses it a lot.

* In the AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho drama ''Spare Parts'', generally regarded as the definitive Cybermen origin story, it's revealed that the name of the Cybermen comes from the Mondasian cultural practice of adding "man" as a suffix to any designation of a person, eg "Doctorman", "Sisterman", etc.

* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E11Utopia "Utopia"]], we meet Chantho, an insectoid alien who begins her every sentence with "chan-" and ends it with "-tho." She ''can'' choose not to do it, but it's implied that it's her race's equivalent of swearing like a sailor.

* UsefulNotes/McDonalds is the TropeCodifier for this, with their menu of 'Mc' foods. [[ExaggeratedTrope Soon everyone started doing it]] (although it is mostly, but not always, used to demonstrate [[{{Cliche}} how cheap or quickly-made something is]]), with words like '[=McMansion=]' coming out of the woodwork.

** This phenomenon doesn't just happen with cheaply made products or joke references; there is some surprising official merchandising happening, too. This troper worked as a McDonalds manager for a time, and was dumbfounded to learn that the stamp used to void checks and paperwork was actually a "Mcvoid" stamp. As in, it literally stamped "Mcvoid" in bright red letters.
