I used it in a sentence today and someone told me that SLIPPY is not a word.

I guess they were wrong. :D

Sorry, but slippy is NOT a word, even though you used it. Slippery is probably what you wanted. "They" were correct.

Eh...it's a bastardization of the English language. Wait ten years and it probably will be an 'official' word. Languages are constantly changing.

And you might want to fix your sig, too........


i would like to know who's definition of virgin includes "All-out sex (without condom)"

"Who's" means "who is", the possessive version you want is "whose". What you have reads, "I would like to know who is definition of virgin...."

Yes, this slip is more slippy that that one. Could you add a touch of felspar and quartz to thicken it up a bit. Thanks

What would the adverb for the verb slip be?
What would the adjective for the noun slip be?


I say it is a word if "slip" is a verb... perhaps... like trippy.... cool.... man...

I thought of slip too when I read that word. I don't think quartz has anything to do with clay though...
