Orated - rare?
« on: November 08, 2012, 09:39:31 PM »
Yesterday's 10 letter puzzle included orated as a rare word.  It's not the first time it has come up and I've always been surprised that it isn't classified as common.  I'm pretty sure orate counts as common (though I might be wrong).  In any case, I'd suggest that orate, orated, orator and orating should all be common.
