comment Is ‘misunderestimate’ a received (American) English word?
In fairness to our feckless ex-president, in watching the video tape of this Bushism, it seems to me he is saying, "They mis... underestimated me." I imagined that he had started to say, "They misjudged me" or something similar, but then changed it.

comment Is “forwent” used much?
@BarrieEngland: "Since I was sick yesterday, I forwent jogging." Try all of your suggested words in its place: none works. Try any other English word or phrase of two syllables or less. I still am not seeing that it "serves no useful purpose" as your answer claims.

comment Is “forwent” used much?
I wonder if the respondent here could elaborate on his claim that the word serves no useful purpose. Is there another word that is equivalent and preferred?
