Is "Definitely" or "Definitly" a word?
No matter what word processing software I use, nothing recognizes that word, meaning when I type in "Definitely", it underlines it in red, when I right click to correct this word, it suggests words not even close that. I'm definitely frustrated..oh wait, I mean defiantly, umm.. I mean distantly... OK well "Definitely" is not recognized as a word
definitely is a word. The built in spell and grammar checks are not always correct. Simply do a search on the word, find definition, and online thesaurus to choose another word or use definitely.
I definitely know that definitely is a real word. However, my spell checker tells me it's wrong and do I want to use defiantly instead. Go figure.
Definitely is a word. So what about define? How does that one come out? It does surprise me that such a word could be missed out by whoever uploaded or input the words to be shown on the spell check of a computer program.
I can't say I've ever noticed this glitch and I must have used that word 'definitely' many times. But you've made me think that I must try it out now. So as soon as I've finished this answer I will go to my word processing program and check it out.
In the meantime, you go on using definitely because it definitely a word.
checked in on my Word Processing System and it's fine.
Yes, I 'm guessing some word processing software will recognize it, but for some reason Microsoft Word does not, but I think I can add it to the dictionary database
