eu- <> dys- (good) <> (bad) -phemi ~ phone ~ sound => euphemism ~ make good speech instead of bad one

eu ‘well’ + phēmē ‘speaking.’

eu(r u?)+phemism(feminist) instead of saying " r u feminist" we can say " r u in favor of women rights?" because the first one seems hursh and rude :)

Euphemism = e + u + ph + emission; your phone emission i.e sound is sweet.
