My ex-boyfriend likes to call me a language nazi. Last night, while we
were on the phone, he used a word that’s been bothering me for a while.
It’s a word
I’ve seen and heard a lot of people using and everytime I hear it, it
feels like nails scratching on a keyboard.
Conversate is not a word. Converse is the word you’re looking for. You converse in a conversation. You do not conversate in a conversation.
Don’t believe me? Think about it this way. What is the verb form of
preservation? Preservate or preserve? Exactly. If you still don’t
believe me, look up “conversate” and “converse” in your dictionary and tell me what you find.
