POV statement[edit]

These days "alternate" is so commonly used to mean "alternative" that it is no longer a misuse. All the major dictionaries accept this meaning. Cambridge Online, The Free Dictionary and Dictionary.com all list this meaning. Jubileeclipman 17:07, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Is "misunderestimate" not a misuse either? At least the etymology of this misuse should be clarified, no? 79.79.168.97 10:28, 11 October 2016 (UTC)
