50 Mistreated Words and Desecrated Phrases: Supposeably

Gotta say it. I am opposed to the word “supposeably.” Maybe that’s superfluous. It’s not really a word at all.

One might suppose it could be, based on the usage it receives. But, even if we were able to suppose, it would not be supposeably so.

Supposedly, words join the lexicon of common usage when they are bandied about enough. But that doesn’t reduce the cringe factor of such a term.
