The suffix "-cide" comes from the Latin suffix "-cida", which means "to kill". In today's word, this suffix is blended with "innovation" to give the definition above. There are many other "-cide" words in English, including such death industry standards as "suicide", "homicide", and "genocide". Here are a few unusual variations on this theme:
facticide: To kill facts (i.e., distort the truth).
menticide: To kill the mind, as in a brainwashing.
suitorcide: To do something that kills your chances with a potential mate.
tomecide: To kill books, as in a book burning.
liberticide: To reduce or remove freedoms.
