While perusing the internet, I came across an article about words. So, of course I had to then stop and check it out.
Reader’s Digest has compiled a list of 15 words that many folk argue aren’t words at all.

This list was originally compiled by Brittany Gibson for Reader’s Digest.
Most of these I’ve heard many times. One I hadn’t heard before was prolly (used instead of probably). Some of these I’ve used myself in everyday speech. The four words from the list that I’ve NEVER used myself are: prolly, conversate, nother, and madded.
Interestingly, the WordPress program underlined SIX of these words in red indicating that they are not words. LOL.
The SIX that WordPress underlined are: prolly, snuck, madded, impactful, nother, and conversate.
