isolatable

adjective;
I don’t know why this word was used, but likely because it fit the form of so many other words that add –able to describe their ability. Likely, the word just fit the preconceived idea of a linguistic pattern.
 
Dude, I don’t even think that is isolatable.
Etymology : The morpheme -ble means 'able to be done' and is attached to the word isolate. The 'e' turns into an 'a' like expected from common allomorphic changes, and the new morpheme creates a new meaning to a common word.
