forever doing something ( very often)[edit]

If you say that someone is forever doing something, you mean that they do it very often (For this meaning, the only acceptable spelling is forever) Babbage was forever spotting errors in their calculations --Backinstadiums (talk) 18:03, 25 August 2021 (UTC)Reply

The OED suggests forever means “incessantly”, and the two-word one means “for all future time”, as in we’ll be together for ever. --Backinstadiums (talk) 09:51, 20 November 2021 (UTC)Reply
