Do people still use the word "posthaste" any more?
I've heard the use of the word decades ago. Is the word still being used? I don't want to embarrass myself (and show my age) by using a word that is no longer being used anymore.
I use it it but then again I enjoy using anachronistic words and idioms.
I hated when folks used it almost as I hate when people say Having said that.. drives me crazy... Good question my friend
I too enjoy using words like "posthaste". However, I have to admit my enjoyment is in no small part due to how much I annoy my family with this sort of verbiage!
It's not something i hear everyday but it's definately still in relatively common usage.
I have read this word but have not ever heard this word used in education, conversation or otherwise. I am thinking this word is rather dated but could be used if the written work is appropriate for aged content.
I'm thinking the same as Naomi. There may be regional differences. I doubt that you would hear or even see it written in the US. I don't think I have ever heard or used it in conversation.
I only use it in a sort of mimic "fear not, I shall execute this posthaste".
It's a bit of a strange word really, does it mean 'after speed'?
I have never heard this word used in "real" life. But, it might just be that the circle of people I am around don't use it.
