E.g. when you want to say that this piece of software has a lot of bug. Can I use something like buggy or bugged?


1 Answer 1


Yes, "buggy" ... Or be fancier and say "bug-ridden", "bug-filled", "Bug-infested"

Bu not "bugged" ... that means something with a concealed listening device. Certain software may be bugged as well as buggy.

  • I'm watching twitch and many streamers (native speakers) refer to bugs in a game (software) as bugged. Like "yep, it's bugged"
