7 Words That Aren't Real Words

Hello, readers!
I've mentioned before that I'm pretty random, right? And I also like posting an occasional fun post on my blog. So, this Friday's post is basically  a combination of my randomness, my inward writer, and want for a fun post.




Irregardless
So yes, irregardless is technically a "word", as in  it doesn't have a red line under it in the Blogger post. But really, what on earth does it mean? The opposite of regardless? With regards? Why not just say with regards.....?


Supposably
Oh, were you thinking of the word supposedly? I bet you were! 


Undoubtably
Another commonly miss-spelled yet accepted word, just like supposably. In this case, the word should be undoubtedly.  


Conversate 
This is definitely not a word- even Google says so! Converse works and sounds a lot better. 


Unthaw
This one makes me laugh. If you're unthawing something, you're freezing it. So why not just say freeze and save yourself a syllable?


Flustrated 
You can be frustrated or flustered, but not flustrated! Please pick one or the other.



Heighth  
Yes, this is a Bible word, and it was used in ancient times. But now, it's considered an out-of-date word, so just use height, okay?



I hope you enjoyed this rather unusual post! I had fun writing it. :D  What was your favorite "un-word"? Do you use any words like these?

    1. Really? That's hilarious! Supposably is a pretty fun word, though. xD

  6. Interesting post here. I think that littler is not a word. My dad always told me it's smaller not littler, but now littler has become a word. I don't like it. Very funny post! I like it.

    1. Thank you! I agree- littler doesn't really sounds like a word! Smaller works much better. :)

  7. I haven't used any of these words before. I'm kind of a stickler when it comes to words and their proper uses of them. lol But I have invented 2 words before. I can't remember if I've made up any more or not.....
    One word even has a "definition". :)
    Have a godly day.
    Love in Christ,

    1. Haha, I'm rather a stickler too (sometimes), so it was fun to point out these un-words. ;)
      That's cool that you've invented words before! I need to do that sometime....

      Delete
    2. Hm. Yeah. I'm positive the word I invented qualifies as one of the weirdest words. lol

  8. I've used 'irregardless' while speaking before, but never have heard any of those other ones! Definitely pinning to save for later!

  10. I actually... don't think I use any of these words? BUT NOW I REALLY WANT TO START USING "flusterated" IN NORMAL CONVERSATIONS BECAUSE THAT IS THE FUNNIEST. xD

    Loved this! :D

  11. Nice random post. I hear and read words like this frequently, but its interesting to see the difference between the spelling and actual pronunciation.

  13. *Coughs* I use every word on your list except flustrated. *Coughs*
    Personally I make up my own words all the time so it doesn't bother me but haha I didn't realize that some things I say aren't even real words!
