Curiously, many words ending in suffix -tion like transportation are clipped. From the linguistics point of view, there may be several explanations. Chu Hai College of Higher Education students in Hong Kong wrote research papers on English Clipped words including theories, so I'll be able to write my essay fast in 2 hours or so.
