fervourous

News flash.

'Fervourous' is not a word. Nor is 'fervorous'.

So if you have used it lately, it shows that you are a creative genius, or you are as dumb as a plank. Maybe you are both.

Maybe it's a type of dinosaur?

I was thinking that perhaps fervent was the word you were grasping for...

Gordon Cheng said...

Campbell, animals would be smart enough not to use such language.

Michael K said...

maybe its like missional...

Gordon Cheng said...

You may say that Mike. I couldn't possibly comment.

The Pook said...

No that would be more like missionous or missioniferous wouldn't it?

Dictionary.com does allow for "ferverous"

Mikey, I tried that link and it doesn't work.

That said, I think the word you were trying to link to is 'feverous', which is indeed a word, but it is not the same as 'ferverous' and has, in some cases at least, a slightly pejorative meaning.

But mate, given the choices that I offered in the original blog post, I am going to put you down as a 'creative genius'.
