I came a cross with this word by reading a mailing list.
"Hot, Cold, Wet ... it's all the same .. But taking a bath just to make a
meaningless and preportedly major decision, now that is a feat wholly on it's own worth noting :D"
The Free Dictionary, Webster, Cambridge Dictionary, Dictionary.com, Collins - they all haven't this word.
Have anybody a idea?
Thanks in advance.
I think that the word the writer intended to use may have been "purportedly".
This means "supposedly" or "believed to be".
