Do the prefixes make it easier to understand?

I've always thought it was ridiculous to attach to the name of a thing a preposition to identify what type of a thing it is.

"What you are doing is trying to expose the physical storage choices in your logical data model all over again. And you are making your code hard to read. Try to read "Paris in the Spring," "nounParis prepIn artThe nounSpring" and see if the prefixes make it easier to understand; now imagine that was a 20 word sentence with subclauses."
