  • My niece tells me this is a word. She saw it in the "big dictionary" at school. I said that if something is wrong, it's wrong, period. There's no need for "wronger" or "wrongest." Was I wrong...?

  • You were certainly wronger than your niece.

  • Well, it's not, you know, the bestest word if you're looking for a superlative, but you can sure say "thou wrongest me" or call someone a wronger of rights (or something). (Check out wrongst and wrang. What fun!)

  • The wrongest step of all is to be so eaten up with your own calamity as to be led into crime. The temple of your body is sacred; it was not yours to give, it is not yours to destroy.

  • OED has wronger but not wrongest. But it does have wrong-foot: "2. fig. To disconcert by an unexpected move; to catch unprepared."

  • The Wiktionary entry for wrongest has the following:

    "Adjective

    wrongest

    (obsolete, humorous) Superlative form of wrong: most wrong.

    Verb

    wrongest

    (obsolete) Second person singular present form of wrong."

    If you go to Wordnik's page for wrongest, you'll see that although it has part of the Wiktionary definition, it lacks humor.
