I've not seen this used much. Can someone perhaps direct me to a more appropriate word.

Edit: I would like to use it in emphasizing a current situation where something has become abundant over a short period.

Ie:

Cyberspace is filled with various x, y and evermoreso now the extensive option for z.

Could you give some context to explain where you'd like to use this? –  simchona Jul 13 '11 at 6:21

I've definitely heard it (as three individual words), but I'm not sure if it's a corruption of "even more so" or not. –  waiwai933 Jul 13 '11 at 6:24

From the Random House Word Menu, there is actually "evermore so", and it's an emphsizer.

Someone else on his blog wrote this:

and yet I felt evermore-so. ...

I saw that blog too, but no other source I could find used the same word. However, good find on the Random House link –  simchona Jul 13 '11 at 7:29

After searching Google for a while, I was unable to find any real use of the exact phrase "evermore-so" or "evermoreso". That being said, I would suggest a few alternatives:

"even more so":

Cyberspace is now filled with various widgets, and is even more so now the chosen option for fubars.

You can change the descriptor to express the growth differently, such as:

Cyberspace is now filled with various widgets, and is increasingly more so the chosen option for fubars.

Perhaps another member can give a one-word suggestion, but in my mind it's really a phrase.

I think the meaning that I want is not preserved. My wrong in not expressing it properly. –  VanJeer Jul 13 '11 at 7:37
