Subject: Re: 1995 Candidates "Word of the Year"

Speaking for myself, I use it because I heard it used around the office.

It may not be in the dictionary, but it seems those around me use it because

they feel it's a word that should exist. When enough people agree that a

word exists by using it, it exists; first within a certain subculture, then

it filters out to the mainstream at some point. Your guess is as good as mine

whether "integritous" qualifies as a "real" word yet.
