I found this sentence on a news site -
The Watchdog chases wrongdoing but also admires right doing.
This tickled my fancy! I know the noun wrongdoing but then why not rightdoing as a single word? If we make it a single word, it'll change from a verb phrase(?) (two words) to a single word noun!
My homework -
No dictionary lists the word 'rightdoing'. But...
I searched and found only one instance in COCA
What could be more patronizing than the refusal to blame people for their wrongdoing and to praise them for their rightdoing, and to ground this refusal in our assumption that these people have not caused their own acts or had a hand in forming their own character.
Now the question -
Is rightdoing an acceptable noun? Or it's used, as in first example, only as verb phrase ('right' followed by 'doing')?
Note: I'm not sure about calling that as a 'verb phrase' and would like to have it edited, if needed. Nevertheless, I'm concerned about using the word 'rightdoing' as a noun/single word.
