Not a dipthong

I'm particularly fond of words with an "-ish" suffix. They always seem a little less than real and serious to me.

aguish, a.

1. Of the nature or character of an ague.

2. Having a tendency to produce ague.

3. Subject to ague.

4. fig. Resembling an ague, in shakiness or intermittency;    a. quaking, shivering, shaky;    b. coming by fits and starts.
