    singlemost/single-most

    I've heard this word several times, but what it really means still remains obscure to me.
    Can you give me some synonyms and perhaps an example sentence using it?

    The number one, the max:
    The singlemost important reason = it's by far the most important reason

    Re: singlemost/single-most

    Thank you very much tdol.
    I 've consulted many dictionaries but I haven't managed to find this word.
    Any idea why it's not included in dictionaries??

    You'll find it used, but dictionaries still prefer it as two words.
