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)
