    There is no such word as "evoluate."

    That's right.

    Will, what made you think this word existed? Did you try to look it up before you posted?

    Re: evolve and evoluate

    I found 'evolate (fly forth or away) and 'evolute' (develop by evolution) in the OED, but no 'evoluate'.

    Perhaps he has heard the word "evaluate" and assumed that was related to evolution.

    Yes I did and actually that's why I got confused because Google shows some people use it. (sigh)

    Thank you everyone
