    Re: Mr

    I found this thread with the word "appravation" used. I wonder if it is an abreviation??

    Re: Mr

    The only hits of this word are actually on this forum:

    https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/l...11506-esq.html

    In the thread it is used as "abbreviation", so I wonder....

    Re: Mr

    I've never heard this word. Where did you find it? What is the context?

    In my opinion it's either an existing word spelt wrongly or is a recent coining, but there are no obvious signs that appravation exists.

    Re: Mr

    I thought it did, as Tdol answered the other question and did not mention the word appravation to be wrongly spelled. Interesting question, I like new words.

    I imagine Tdol - like other people who have replied to this thread (and like me) - suspected the word didn't exist, but was too busy to check. The context ("Esq.") suggests it's a typo for abbreviation.
