  • It's not a word. It should be "as well".

  • What caitxrawks said, or if you're talking about the ocean, "a swell."

  • The retarded way to spell 'as well'. Despite what some people may think, 'aswell' is two separate words in any case, rather than just in a sentence containing 'as well as'.


    Lol Got this from Urban Dictionary!

  • Thanks for the education srhmldndo. Your use of the word "retarded" shows just how smart you are.
    And of course, aswell is not a word. People make gramatical mistakes on here all the time, probably ridiculously assuming that other readers have something better to do then pick their grammar and spelling errors apart.

  • didn't you see she got it from the Urban Dictionary? Jeesh!!
    from webster's --- slow or limited in intellectual or emotional development or academic progress
    Sounds accurate to me.
    And I'm not being insensitive. I have a MR aunt who I love and respect very much.

  • Anon 2:10, it's not a lack of something better to do, but rather the impossible task of ignoring blatant misuse of the language, the rules of which are taught in elementary school. So, unless these mamas dropped out of school in early elementary, there really is no good reason for not using those rules. So while I'm at it, the word is "than" not "then" as in, " . . . readers have something better to do then pick their grammar and spelling errors apart."


    I enjoy a well written sentence.
