Anatomical adverbs
« on: May 30, 2020, 02:52:13 PM »
Aurally, anally, orally etc. are all accepted as words, even common ones, but "renally" comes up as unknown. It might not be as common as those above, but it's still a word, I think.

This suggestion was raised a few years ago, jancsika - see this topic. I concluded then that renally could be considered a word, although it didn't seem to be in any dictionaries, because it is occasionally used in medical publications. Nevertheless, I felt it was too obscure to be included in Chihuahua.

Makes me wonder what will happen if ever I find the letters delivering "inguinal" in my lap, so to speak :)
