Usage notes[edit]

Ofttimes misanalyzed by the native speakers and thus confused with assholehood(the state or condition of being an asshole). The only dialects that seem to draw a clear distinction between assholehood(the state or condition of being an asshole) and assholedom(the state or condition of an asshole) are Northern English dialects which still maintain the "hood/dom" distinction.
