    Question Un/In-feasible

    Greetings of the season to everyone! Could you please provide an answer to whether infeasible is not used anymore, and whether unfeasible has officially replaced it?

    Welcome to the forum, Maria.

    Much to my surprise, I must admit, click here to view evidence that the 'in-' version is more commonly used.

    Note that there is no English authority to 'officially' declare which version is correct. You can use either.

    Were such an authority to be created, I would fervently hope that it would take only one action: to declare the existence of such an authority contrary to the spirit of English and disband.
