forgottenly

In accordance with the new 'rules I'll just post the who,what,where,why and how paragraph you may check out the rest of the story, which, btw is not really about the child... but about emerging words "coinage" if you will.
Forgottenly? It isn't acceptable yet, but surely the world of lexicography should open its doors and let the adverb in. Granted, it does not fall trippingly on the tongue, but it precisely identifies a failing that differs significantly from "accidentally" or "mistakenly." True, Webster's defines "accidental" as something that happens "without intent or through carelessness and often with unfortunate results," but there's a distinction. Last month we read of a motorist in Florida who filled his gas tank and drove away with the hose still attached. He did this accidentally, yes, but more precisely he did this forgottenly. It is something to remember.

see:boy forgottenly left....
I wasn't sure which catagory this section belonged in, but it didn't have a good "emerging words" section so......

I think I've heards things like aniversário de seis meses used in Portuguese too and it never struck me as odd, which is odd by itself. Probably people relate anniversary to a celebration and forget that an annum has to vertere (turn) for that to happen.

BD, your [ /url ] closing code is way at the end of your post, which I don't believe you intended.

Is this the article you were trying to post?

It is what I intended, isn't it? But anyway yours is right, Tim.

If someone is celebrating their 11-month anniversary, is that a quasi-anniversary?

BD, you just reminded me of something that had receded far into the depths of my memories...

Prior to marriage, when Shannon and I were dating, we celebrated every month on the date that we had begun dating. The first month was our one-month-aversary, the second our two-month-aversary, etc.

So our 11th month was our eleven-month-aversary.

I had almost forgotten all about that!

Tim, that's understandable. It's the woman who's in charge of keeping track of all the dates and will nag you in case you forget them (at least so I'm told).

Would it be a Freudian Slip to call it a 30-year adversity? :wink:

Of course a 30-year anadversity would be 30 years without adversity. :)
