It's not serious, but I felt it was interesting :wink: - "UN-" as a prefix plus "-LESS" as suffix is not "UNLESS"...

BUT

There is an example, that may link them, what d'you think :?: : "UNI-" means "one-" plus "-LESS" :?:

And "ONE" is "able" to form an adverb with "-LY" as "ONLY"... of course I may be in a total confusion... Well, I usually explain this word this way when I teach.
