  • Sigh... the english is a secnod laguage to me but it doen't meen that i cant write corectly.

    (just kidding, rolig)

  • Rolig, you give me too much credit. My math went like this: tempting + spacious = temptacious!

  • I just realized what your reasoning was, dc: temptation + capacious. Got it.

    Mollusque, as you know, there are a lot of crazy spellings out in Googleland, especially on web pages written by people who do not have a firm grasp of English (I mean that English is a second or third language for them). I respect your checking the word on Google Books. I will have to remember that.

  • Rolig, I called it a variant rather than a misspelling because it gets more than 10% of the g-hits relative to temptatious. But on Google Books, there's only one bona fide usage (after excluding OCR errors), which means editors don't let it stand, so I agree that it's a misspelling. I added it to my panvocalic list after dontcry commented on it, but have dropped it now.

  • Also an anagram of "moist teacup".

  • It also could be part of the unconscious mind that is susceptible to temptation. See?

    September 20, 2008

  • I don't know what it is. I just random worded it and came up with a logical definition. It also could be, among other things, a bodacious song by the Temptations.

  • OK, dontcry, if you say so. But at the risk of sounding prescriptivistic, this seems to me more like a misspelling (or a "creative spelling" as one of my teachers used to say) than a variant of "temptatious."

    September 20, 2008

  • Um.....me?

    September 20, 2008

  • Says who?

    September 20, 2008

  • Variant of temptatious.

    September 20, 2008

  • A very large area that beckons you.
