Whenever describing something that is seldom looked for or desired I often verbalise it with
"ill sought after" without hesitating.
ill is its own word, the trouble I'm having writing it in the question..is the question)
However, I went to write an email with this phrase and no matter how I wrote it it looked really odd.
ilsought after? I don't think that's a word, maybe I could coin it with a cheeky hyphen
il-sought after? Seems like I'm only negating sought, not the whole phrase
il-sought-after? No, no, I need help now.
So, is there a different prefix I'm supposed to be using? Should
sought after be hyphenated? Is there already a phrase that already means this I'm forgetting? (I really like 'sought after', though..)
