Talk:awkward

Return to "awkward" page.

I sometimes find that this word is hard to spell. Thank goodness for Microsoft Word. Possibilities of spellings include: ackward, aquard, and akward. -24.23.147.216 03:46, 20 April 2007 (UTC)


I personally can't see anyone using the words "awkwarder" and "awkwardest". This is an example of bad, lazy English; should these be removed? —This comment was unsigned.

Personal knowledge is not determinitive of the content of our entries. When you write your book, you might wish not to use those words, but the authors of more than a hundred published books use "awkwarder". We don't say that usage is wrong. I'm sure you can find a book that will agree with you that it is wrong. DCDuring TALK 10:49, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
