Which is the Strongest Prefix?

Out of un,mis or dis which is strongest?

I tend to rank them - weakest to strongest - mis, un and then dis.

I do this based on nothing but exposure and personal opinion. I’m curious as to what is the actual weight given to each.

Thank you in advance for your answers.



In what way are they synonyms?

They aren’t. Generally, un- denotes a simple negative; mis- implies some wrongness (“misplaced” means put in the wrong place); and dis-generally means reversing an action (but can mean a few other things as well).


The prefixes are doubleplusungood candidates for Newspeak
