  • My niece tells me this is a word. She saw it in the "big dictionary" at school. I said that if something is wrong, it's wrong, period. There's no need for "wronger" or "wrongest." Was I wrong...?

  • You were certainly wronger than your niece.

  • Well, it's not, you know, the bestest word if you're looking for a superlative, but you can sure say "thou wrongest me" or call someone a wronger of rights (or something). (Check out wrongst and wrang. What fun!)

  • The wrongest step of all is to be so eaten up with your own calamity as to be led into crime. The temple of your body is sacred; it was not yours to give, it is not yours to destroy.

  • This page is just all...what's the word?

    Wrong. That's it.

  • I'm not using it. Except to refer to this page, of course. Because, if loving this page is wrongest, I don't want to be rightester.
