Conversate gets a lot of abuse
Protestations and rancor effuse
Your editor bawls
And blames Biggie Smalls
But our records show centuries of use
Yes, we are aware that there are quite a few people out there who do not consider conversate a real word. However, since it has had significant use for a considerable length of time (since at least 1811), and is always used with a distinct meaning, we have chosen to define it.
