I tried to hold onto what I knew to be absolute truth, but the hardcore facts were staring me in the face.
I pride myself on my vast knowledge of Barry Manilow lyrics. I became a fan over 30 years ago, at an age when my hearing was intact and my thirst for pop culture knowledge was at its strongest. So, I was a bit surprised when someone stated that “dictuend” is not a word.
“Oh, yes it is,” I argued. “It means to dictate or orchestrate.”
“Use it in a sentence,” they challenged.
