    to err

    This is that almost no one has yet got it right, or even come close. As is even more relevant, all the guesstimates by all the experts have erred,
    massively, in the same way.


    hi,
    is 'to err' good and natural English, please? why is it so rare to hear a native saying it?
    thanks.

    Re: to err

    It is a bit archaic, you will not hear many people saying it.

    Re: to err

    "Too err" is not heard much nowadays, but I am sure that most people understand it. You're more likely to hear words like "goof" or "screw up" (actually two words).
