aegrotous

Tagged by @Ready Steady Yeti, but not listed. Definition:

  1. (archaic) Sick

This IP has posted a plethora of mostly-unattestable archaic and obsolete terms (see hoif above, for another example). Etymologically, it would make sense for a term to exist with this spelling, but this returns absolutely zero hits on Google Books and Google Groups under this spelling and under the spelling with the æ ligature. Even on plain Google Search, this returns no hits, with only three if you use the ligature (one of which is an archived copy of the first one)- and those are mentions in non-English-language dictionaries.

It would be interesting to know whether the anon IP (from Croydon or Woking?) is in fact Ready Steady Yeti (-- probably not, it's a long way from California). It would also be interesting to know where they are getting all the non-words from. We do have the related word aegrotant, but not the rare but attestable aegritude. Dbfirs 06:34, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
Nonsense. I teleport from one side of the country to the other every day... Ready Steady Yeti (talk) 22:14, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

I say watch out for this IP. It seems like he/she's making up fake words. Ready Steady Yeti (talk) 18:45, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
No, I think our notorious Asturianín would make fewer stupid mistakes, at least of the kind Yeti makes. Keφr 08:01, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
