But what do you get when you surmise?

You get a surmisal.

How does one make a conjecture?

You get a conjective.

Those are the noun versions.
Spread them around on the Internet far and wide and they'll get included in the OED (eventually).

I mean a few years ago canceled was speeled with one l and now they do it with two cancelled.
Also, the dictionary finally gave up on irregardless and just made it mean the same thing as regardless.
Don't even start on flammable and inflammable.
Also people send me email and say, "please see the below chart". Which we all know is wrong.
They should be saying "please see the chart below".

English is quite pliable. Just keep pressing on it and it'll bend to your ways. Laugh | :laugh:
