The word disingenuine does not exist in the English language[edit]

In every case where it is not obviously used in error, by someone who meant to use disingenuous, the word is placed in quotation marks, indicating poetic license. That is the equivalent of someone writing about an uneducated person's fear of a "nucular" war. Just because a word is written or said does not make it correct. There is a good search for examples here: [The Linguist List]Amusing, but less than convincing that it is not a typo and a mis-spoken propos. Cesanth (talk) 05:51, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

This user was confused, and thought that our wiki markup (three apostrophes to make a word bold) represented quotation marks in the original. That's absolutely not true. Equinox 03:41, 7 December 2017 (UTC)
