So is "funner" an actual word now?

    It's used so much and now I've noticed people don't correct their peers on it as much. Also today my English teacher used it... I know the term "more fun" is correct but why hasn't this just been added to the dictionary already? Is this like the last line of defense for literature geeks everywhere?

    "It's not 'funner'! It's more fun you idiot!!"

    Depends on what our all knowing over lord thinks.

    So sovi, whats your final say?

    :lol:

    I am not much bothered by all this new language, words get shortened, new words invented etc.

    The member doth protest to much me thinks.;)

    Likely, the vocabulary gets affected by pop culture a lot so I dont see why funner wouldnt fit into the equation.

    Oh but if we added all terms that were commonly used the English dictionary would be exactly the same as the urban dictionary.

    I don't think it's a word to be put in the dictionary, I use it, but it's only used for colloquial. I could cough out a lot of scouse slang right now that I use in speech but I'd never ever dream of putting them on an exam paper.

    Yeah I agree.
    Sometimes when I am talking with friends etc. it just slips out you know.
    Its easy to say.

    But I wouldn't write a paper using it or anything.

    One should really say 'Of greater fun' or, if you wish, 'more fun'. But no way is 'funner' a word.

    It definitely shouldn't be a word, then all similar words would have to be added, e.g. boreder, iller, tireder, etc. It would sound so stupid talking properly with all of them words.

    I don't think it is a word, but half of my jargon wouldn't be considered words either, but with "funner" *shudders* it just sounds terrible, and like someone else said, it makes whoever is saying it sound like an idiot.

    Haha. Wow. Didn't know it wasn't a word.

    But down here in the south, I guess there's slack on a few words.

    But teachers will jump on you if you use the word, "Ain't" ]:
    Blast ye teachers.
    Blast ye.

    yeah i think it's becoming more common, it sounds more right than boreder or the previous examples said above

    funner

    wait! the spell checker doesn't underline 'funner' with a red line
