I apologize for the hectoring tone of my previous remark. The one starting with 'NO! NO! NO!'.

John. Since you've got that stick handy, can you please scratch my acnestis? A little to the left.... Down a little ... There... Thank you! *curds*

Maybe concupiscient means "knowledge of concupiscence?"*pokes sionnach with a stick*
NO! NO! NO!How can you make so many mistakes in just a couple of lines of text?"Concupiscient" is not a word. It is a misspelling of "concupiscent", just as "concupiscience" is a misspelling of concupiscence. None of these options is a verb, with or without the split infinitive.concupiscent is an adjective; concupiscence is a noun.The suffix 'scient' generally pertains to knowledge, another pointer to the fact that this is a misspelling.
