Is "mandatoriness" a commonly used word? I am intending to use it in a technical paper.

  • To answer your question, No. Now for a question of my own - could you please provide the context? I would imagine there is a better way of saying what you are trying to say. – Josh Dec 17 '13 at 19:28

    Are you trying to describe the state of being mandatory such as whether or not something is mandatory? Context will help, as will your own research for this question. – Kristina Lopez Dec 17 '13 at 19:36

No, it is not. Mandatory is common. Mandatory requirements, information, format etc., yes.

Mandatoriness, no.
