    samely

    I have come across a boastful young man on the Internet who claimed to have been abroad. He said the word ‘samely’ could replace ‘by the same logic’ with the meaning unchanged. I looked up several dictionaries, and failed to find the word. Is there really a word in use that is called ‘samely’? What is its definition?

    I'm not sure where he travelled, but I have never heard it used and it's not in my dictionary. I think he means 'similarly'.
