These citations may well be authentic, but this word in common usage is still bad English. I second the ARGH.

Thanks danpage0! Glad to know it's actually a word after all.

Used by Alfred Lord Tennyson in Crossing the Bar, Leonardo di Vinci used it also. It has been around for quite a while.
Unless someone died in the midst of spelling acrostic, or has some kind of speech defect that prohibits the proper pronunciation of across, this isn't a word.If someone should happen to find some incredibly archaic definition for it, well, great. Until then... ARGH!
