affectatious

  • June 25, 2005, 4:23pm

Hi,

was top of a google search for 'affectatious'.

I've decided on 'affectatious' as the best word to use in the following sentence, but I wanted to check up on the word because my Websters doesn't have it. I like it. Here's the sentence:

"In my novel, should I use the word 'dahling' for 'darling' when spoken by an affectatious woman?"

i.e. A woman with affectations, a lá Betty Davis in some of her movies.

I like this site and will put it in my list of dictionaries.
