Sadarino

derivation; adjective
sad or unfortunate
 
This word was likely coined largely to add variety to describing things that are unfortunate/sad. It is not applicable to every use of the word sad because it has lighthearted connotations and wouldn’t be appropriate to replace the more serious uses of the word sad.
Etymology : The word sad is descended from the old english word sæd, which means "sated, full, having had one's fill (of food, drink, fighting, etc.), weary of". It took on the meaning ‘unhappy’ through metaphorical extension to being mentally or physically full and weary. sæd is in turn descended from the proto-germanic word sathaz which is based on the proto-indo-europen root sa- which means ‘to satisfy’. -arino is a modified form of the diminutive suffix -ino with an empty morpheme ‘ar’ to make the word more pleasing to say.
