Unremedied seems to be a single word in M-W, but doesn't seem to be well recognized English word.

I'm looking to find a word that basically conveys, "this infraction is not yet corrected", where "not yet corrected" is the magic word you provide.

    Context is everything in wrangling English idioms. Can you clarify? If it's a case of an infraction, "outstanding" could work. Other circumstances could be addresed by "pending," "unresolved" or "open." – Rob_Ster Feb 15 '16 at 4:39

Unaddressed. Perhaps, unresolved.

  • These work. Unaddressed would imply that no attempt had yet been made to correct the issue. – Chenmunka Feb 23 '16 at 14:27

Uncorrected goes back at least 200 years, so it seems a pretty safe choice.

  • Does "uncorrected" imply the 'yet'? M-W defines uncorrected as "Not corrected". Is there a better word that conveys the "yet"? – K - Feb 15 '16 at 4:23
  • @K- If it's uncorrected then it has not been corrected yet. – Hot Licks Jun 6 '16 at 21:31
