    missing definition

    I recently ran into the word (forn) in the dictionary that is used to define other words but when I checked the dictionary for the definition of this word, it was not found :?

    Re: missing definition

    Could it be a misprint? If you will provide some context I might be able to guess what the writer meant.

    It's probably a misprint- I checked Dictionary.com and OneLook.com and they found nothing.
