    I've never heard either of those, Jirikoo. 'with bias', is what I'm familiar with.

    Hey, Riverkid!

    It appears that 'biasly' is worming its way into the language! See the following for a preview of what is coming down the pike regarding this word!
    biasly - Google Search

    Take care!

    Cheers,
    Amigo

    thats right, however none of the offical dictionaries know of the expression "biasly" at all. I always google a word before i submit it herein and upon that i gotta say that what is on web in a common conversation is not everytime relevant and authoritative.

    thanks anyway

    I was going to mention in my first post that there could be other ways 'bias' is used. Amigo, I see some of the google hits are technical in nature and that use of 'biasly' seems a fair use.

    As I've always said, it's people using language that make the rules and the new vocabulary. Look at 'google', clearly some new uses have come into being for what was once an obscure word.

    You are correct, RK! My wife has been cutting her fabric on the bias for many years!

    I always find it fascinating when 'new' words, or variants of new words, find their way into our coversations!

    Enjoy the good life up north, my friend!

    Cheers,
    Amigo
